But Walter had caught his arm and pulled it down with all the might in his bourgeoning muscles.
Now will I get me up unto mine own forests And behold their bourgeoning.
But perhaps the best service the pasture did us was as a theatre for the dramatization of the bourgeoning social instinct.
A sense of renewal and bourgeoning was upon him, that feeling of waking from a dream and finding the beloved is, after all, alive.
When rains come the emerald hills laugh with delight as bourgeoning bloom is spread in the sunlight.
early 14c., "grow, sprout, blossom," from Anglo-French burjuner, Old French borjoner "to bud, sprout," from borjon "a bud, shoot, pimple" (Modern French bourgeon), of uncertain origin. Perhaps from Vulgar Latin *burrionem (nominative *burrio), from Late Latin burra "flock of wool," itself of uncertain origin. Some sources (Kitchin, Gamillscheg) say either the French word or the Vulgar Latin one is from Germanic. The English verb is perhaps instead a native development from burjoin (n.) "a bud" (c.1300), from Old French. Related: Burgeoned; burgeoning.
