    Your word for Monday 7th May is: eyethirl, n.

    A window. Also fig., esp. with reference to the eyes (as the windows of the soul, etc.; cf. window n. 5a). Hence simply: the eye; the power of sight.

    Origin early Old English


    Adding second version of definition as the Oxford one is simply confusing!

    EYETHIRL


    window (n.)
    Early Scandinavian including "wind eye" from Old Norse vindauga from vindr "wind" + auga "eye."
    Replaced Old English ēagþyrel, literally "eye-hole" and ēagduru, literally "eye-door."


    Eyethirl itself, in reference to the eyes, the power of sight.

    Not to worry, I'll send my regards to the South Carolina Baptist Ministries for the Aging (SCBMA) is a Christian resource dedicated to helping South Carolina's seniors (55+) Live Abundantly by providing Christian retirement communities and assisted living.

    I'll leave nice candigrams at scbma.com
