Rheúmy. adj. [from rheum.] Full of sharp moisture.
Is Brutus sick?
And will he steal out of his wholsome bed,
To dare the vile contagion of the night?
And tempt the rheumy and unpurged air,
To add unto his sickness. Shakesp. Julius Cæsar.
The South he loos'd, who night and horror brings,
And fogs are shaken from his flaggy wings:
From his divided beard two streams he pours;
His head and rheumy eyes distil in show'rs. Dryden.
