Word of the week

I find this word, oenemel both charming and useful. Enjoy!

\EE-nuh-mel, EN-uh-\
1. something combining strength with sweetness.
2. a drink made of wine mixed with honey.
Alas, that now no more
The arm-chair or the pulpit will be filled
With that kind presence–keen attention thrilled
By tales of “men and cities,” or the lore
Of those book-depths from which thou knew’st so well
To mix for mind and heart an oenomel.
