This week's theme: short words.
lea (lee, lay) noun
[From Old English leah (meadow). Ultimately from the Indo-European root leuk- (light) that has resulted in other words such as lunar, lunatic, light, lightning, lucid, illuminate, illustrate, translucent, lux, and lynx.]
-Anu Garg (words at wordsmith.org)
"The lowing herd winds slowly o'er the lea." Thomas Gray; Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard.
Every man feels instinctively that all the beautiful sentiments in the world weigh less than a single lovely action. -James Russell Lowell, poet, editor, and diplomat (1819-1891)
