Word of the Day: MEDITABUND

from Latin meditabundus
from meditari (to meditate) + -bundus (suffix forming verbal adjectives)

“…While this he spoke, his Horse he lights off,
And with his Handkerchief he dights off
Tears from his eyes, then on the ground
He grovelling lyes meditabound,
His Horses grievous succussation
Had so excoriat his Foundation,
That till the Hide his Hips did come on,
The earth he could not set his Burn on

From: Mock Poem,
Or, Whiggs Supplication
– Samuel Colvil, 1681
