Re: Delf

Poster: edh@ascc01.ascc.lucent.com

> A delf is a square.  Vert a delf or means "Green, a gold square"

Specifically, a square hole, like a ditch.

The word is related to "delve", as in the old poem:

  One, two, buckle my shoe.
  Eleven, twelve, dig and delve.

What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?
