Word of the Day: Dayspring

This word is ridiculously poetic and it caught my attention.  I’m sure I must have heard it before, but I didn’t remember it.  According to the Google graphic on the word, it was at its heyday around the year 1900, which sounds about right to me.

dayspring“Who would have expected a chance meeting in an adult bookstore could be the dayspring of a new career.”

Dayspring – noun

1) archaic :  the beginning of day : Dawn

2) the beginning of a new era or order of things

~per Merriam-Webster
