Words that I love

Sorrow and solace, sojourn and song
Lavender, lilting, larkspur and long
Captivate, cadence, cathartic, celestial
Awaken, ablaze, alluring, ancestral
Baptism, burnish, brimming, becoming
Tearstained and tenuous, talisman, thrumming
Meadowsweet, madrigal, meander, and mellow
Yearning and yesterday, you-know-who, yellow
Donnybrook, dolce, and devil-may-care
Fracas and foxfire, fractal and fair
Javelin, journey, jackstraw and jell
Kaleidoscope, kissing, keepsake and knell
Nightshade and nectar, nightingale, nest
Zigzag and zeitgeist, zephyr and zest
Radiant, radical, rebel and ready
Highlander, holy, hopscotch and heady
Ivory, imagine, illusion, immortal
Profligate, probity, prism, and portal
Vacillate, valentine, vapor and versatile
Wishing and willow, wispy and worshipful
Everyman, earthy, electric and echo
Giftedness, ghostly, geyser, and gecko
Oscillate, origin, and opalescence
Quaffing and quietude, quest and quintessence
Undulate, uvula, us, and uxorious
Xylem and xylophone, xiphoid, and glorious.

in my dictionary it says "shaped like a sword". I don't really love that word, (or any of the x's to be honest) but I felt like I had to be consistent.

Thanks Algis.
