  • n. Plural form of eyestring.


Sorry, no etymologies found.


  • Toplady, I think, wrote ‘While I draw this fleeting breath, When my eyestrings crack in death’, and although we should not have complained, I imagine, if we had been brought up on that, it is difficult to believe that the now familiar ‘When my eyes shall close in death’ is not an improvement.
