Word of the Day
LEGERDEMAIN (Noun, English) Skilled, dexterous use of the hands when performing magical tricks. Has also taken on a pejorative meaning of deceit or trickery.
Note: Cited originally in English during the 16th century. From the French phrase 'léger de main' (light of hand).

granite ingrate tearing
desert rested deters
I was struck by what a forbidding landscape these word suggest:
