To IMBO’SOM. v.a.

to-imbosom-va

To IMBO’SOM. v.a. [from bosom.]
I. To hold on the bosom; to cover fondly with the folds of one’s
garment; to hide under any cover.
The Father infinite,
By whom in bliss imbosom’d sat the son. Milton’s Par. Lost.
Villages imbosom’d soft in trees,
And spiry towns by surging columns mark’d. Thomson.
2. To admit to the heart, or to affection.
But glad desire, his late embosom’d guest,
Yet but a babe, with milk of sight he nurst. Sidney.
Who glad t’embosom his affection vile,
Did all she might, more plainly to appear. Fairy Queen.
