Found in “Persephone, Falling” by Rita Dove, Line 3
“flowers, one unlike all the others! She pulled, / stooped to pull harder”
The word “Stooped” means to bend one’s head. Although I have heard this word before it was difficult to put the definition in the line because it was a word that you seem to use but cannot exactly define it.
