A royal park in “which no man commons”; rich pasture-land; as Bilhagh (Billa-haugh), Beskwood- or Bestwood-hay, Lindeby-hay, Welley-hay or Wel-hay. These five hays were “special reserves” of game for royalty alone.

A bottle of hay. (See Bottle.)

Between hay and grass. Too late for one and too soon for the other.

Neither hay nor grass. That hobby-de-hoy state when a youth is neither boy nor man.

Make hay while the sun shines.

Take time by the forelock.

One to-day is worth two to-morrows. (Franklin.)
