mixen (plural mixens)

  1. A compost heap; a dunghill.
    • (Can we date this quote by Alfred Lord Tennyson and provide title, author’s full name, and other details?)
      If we have fish at all
      Let them be gold; and charge the gardeners now
      To pick the faded creature from the pool,
      And cast it on the mixen that it die.
