Word of the day

Mellifluous

(of a voice or words) sweet or musical; pleasant to hear.

The jazz singer’s voice was mellifluous and smooth. Reminiscent of Lady Day singing in a Harlem night club with the lights so low and the smoke so thick. It was easy to get lost in her words and the drink in my hand. I’m not worried about tonight. I can make it through, and tomorrow can worry about itself for a change.
