Word of the Day Monday (Whilom)

This word of the day Monday is really starting to increase my vocabulary…another word I had never heard of, whilom.

Whilom- (Adjective, WYE-lum)- Former

Here is an example of the word being used:

“On the eastern side settlement and agriculture have all but obliterated the whilom tallgrass prairie, so that it is hardly visible to anyone who would not seek it out on hands and knees….” — William Least Heat-Moon, PrairyErth, 1991

Lost Friend

Oh my whilom friend

I thought we would be till the end

Turning your back and walked away

No words did you say

I lost you and I don’t know how
