Part of speech: Verb

Definition: To spread by scattering

Source: Merriam- Webster

Found in Edna St. Vincent Millay’s “pity me not because the light of day ” (Line 12)

Knowing the definition helped me understanding what was happening with the wreckage and how it impacted the gales. It put an image in my head on how scatter pilled up. As well as connect line 12 to line 13.
