To TED. v.a.

To TED. v.a.

To TED. v.a. [teadan, Saxon, to prepare.] To lay grass
newly mown in rows.
The smell of grain, or tedded grass or kine,
Or dairy, each rural sight, each rural sound. Milton.
Hay-makers following the mowers, and casting it abroad,
they call tedding. Mortimer’s Husb.
Prudent his fall’n heaps
Collecting, cherish’d with the tepid wreaths
Of tedded grass, and the sun’s mellowing beams,
Rivall’d with artful heats. Philips.
