To Acclo'y. v.a. [See CLOY.]
- To fill up, in an ill sense; to croud, to stuff full; a word almost obsolete.
At the well-head the purest streams arise:
But mucky filth his branching arms annoys,
And with uncomely weeds the gentle wave accloys. Fairy Q.
- To fill to satiety; in which sense cloy is still in use.
They that escape best in the temperate zone, would be accloyed with long nights, very tedious, no less than forty days. Ray on the Creation.
