  Gossamer \Gos"sa*mer\, n. [OE. gossomer, gossummer, gosesomer,
     perh. for goose summer, from its downy appearance, or perh.
     for God's summer, cf. G. mariengarr gossamer, properly Mary's
     yarn, in allusion to the Virgin Mary. Perhaps the E. word

     Virgin Mary's winding sheet, which dropped from her when she
     was taken up to heaven. For the use of summer in the sense of
     film or threads, cf. G. M[aum]dchensommer, Altweibersommer,
     fliegender Sommer, all meaning, gossamer.]
