Word of the Day
balow
  • An utterance used in lulling to sleep.
  • A lullaby.
  • A song containing this word.
'Balow' may be an alteration 'Bas le loup!,' (down! there the wolf), from an old French lullaby. However, the OED says this is only conjecture.
Quote of the Day
When one door closes another door opens; but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us.
