Spoom definitions

Webster's 1828 Dictionary

SPOOM, v.i. To be driven swiftly; probably a mistake for spoon. [See Spoon, the verb.]

Webster's 1913 Dictionary

Spoom Spoom, v. i. [Probably fr. spum foam. See Spume.] (Naut.) To be driven steadily and swiftly, as before a strong wind; to be driven before the wind without any sail, or with only a part of the sails spread; to scud under bare poles. [Written also spoon.] When virtue spooms before a prosperous gale, My heaving wishes help to fill the sail. --Dryden.
