Envelop (V.) -
Crunching drum of feet in patterned step
Covering the more silent
- But still existent -
Plunge of snow,
Slowly enveloping the Earth.
Late Middle English (formerly invelop(e))
From old French - envoloper -
Of unknown origin.
Claiming as a miniature sunset,
Battling, comforting, the front lines of the cold.
Like a child swathed in a blanket,
Held by its guardian - Its world -
Enveloped in a sense of security.
“If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.”
From en, ‘in’, plus
an element of
- unknown origin
Patterned step, falling out of time.
Chaos erupting, drowning peace.
Troops envelop a home.
“Enveloped in a blanket, safe in his mother’s arms.”
“Envelop the head of the enemy and destroy it.”
