Gore. n.s. [ʒore, Saxon; gôr, Welsh, sanious matter.]
A griesly wound,
From which forth gush'd a stream of gore blood thick,
And into a deep sanguine dy'd the grassy ground. F. Queen.
Glutting his father's eyes with guiltless gore. Dryden's Æn.
- Blood clotted or congealed.
The bloody fact
Will be aveng'd; though here thou see him die,
Rolling in dust and gore. Milton's Paradise Lost, b. xi.
His horrid beard and knotted tresses stood
Still with his gore, and all his wounds ran blood. Denham.
