Etymology[edit]

See kydde, imperative of kythe (to show). Apparently a misunderstanding by Spenser.

Verb[edit]

kydst

  1. (obsolete, nonce word) knows (second-person singular)
    • Spenser
      But, ah! unwise and witlesse Colin Cloute, / That kydst the hidden kindes of many a weede, / Yet kydst not ene to cure thy fore heart-roote, / Whose ranckling wound as yet does rifely bleede.
