Middle English from Old French delitier (verb), delit (noun), from Latin delectare ‘to charm’, frequentative of delicere. The -gh- was added in the 16th century by association with light.
It snowed seven inches overnight.
I admit, to my great delight.
I’m a kid at heart, though now my toy
Is a snow blower, not the sled of a boy.
For me the forecast is good,
More snow to come. It should,
.They say, be light until lunch.
After that, it may snow a bunch.
It may be colder still tonight,
To change all that moisture to white.
So tomorrow morning, once more
The blower will down the driveway roar.
