Word Of The Day


1 [noncount: great and impressive beauty 
 The palace had lost much of its original splendor.  the splendor of nature

2 US splendors or Brit splendours [plural: things that are very beautiful or impressive 

 architectural splendors — often + of  the splendors of the countryside

It is a word used to praise something
of beauty
You could also replace it with
Splendid, Sublime, Superb, Stupendous, Brilliance

Take for example this song here

"Love is a many-splendored thing,
It's the April rose that only grows in the early spring,

Love is nature's way of giving a reason to be living,
The golden crown that makes a man a king.
Once on a high and windy hill,
In the morning mist two lovers kissed and the world stood still,
Then your fingers touched my silent heart and taught it how to sing,
Yes, true love's a many-splendored thing"

Yeah i know, such an oldie right
but just listen to the lyrics!

I'm just trying to figure out,
why is "Love a many spledored thing?
why not use "splendorous"?
why "thing" not "things"?

Then again, they're just lyrics
kinda like poetry
it sometimes doesn't make any sense
in a romantic way that is.

Even the most silliest things 
would sound beautiful
when one is in love

alyzv~ was listening to songs back from mama's n tatay's hay-day..they really know how to express themselves back then..
