A secluded enclosure or part of a garden, especially one attached to a large house.

Middle English (in the sense ‘pleasure’): from Old French plaisance, from plaisant ‘pleasing’ (see pleasant).


Patricia perused the pleasance
And soon settled in with her presents.
Surrounded by the flowers,
She wiled away some hours.
Reading her newest book
In the cosy little nook.
