birds sing

bells ring

moon glows

on meadows

Gardyloo

Word of the Day Challenge

The Word Of The Day today is “Gardyloo“.

Definition:   Gardyloo.  Archaic  This is actually a Scottish term, but it sounds really nifty! The definition is a funny and gross one; this is what people living in Edinburgh shouted out their windows as a warning before dumping their slop buckets out of their windows. At least they gave a little bit of a warning to those below!

Please feel free to use the word in a story, poem, or other writing exercises of your own choosing.
