A is for Alacrity
an antiquated term,
displaced in deed by indolence,
lethargy, and sloth—
displaced in phrase with eager cheer
alacrity is lost.
Note: New to ABC Wednesday, I’m looking forward to making new writing connections. To keep me going, I’ve come up with a gimmick to drive my posts. Each week, undercaws will feature an English word not in the common vernacular.
Alacrity: promptness in response : cheerful readiness
