1. to touch, stroke, or poke (a person, part of the body, etc.) so as to produce pleasure, laughter, or a twitching sensation
2. (trans.) to excite pleasurably; gratify
3. (trans.) to delight or entertain
4. (intr.) to itch or tingle
5. (trans.) to catch (a fish, especially a trout) by grasping it with the hands and gently moving the fingers into its gills
6. a sensation of light stroking or itching
7. the act of tickling
8. (Canadian) (in the Atlantic Provinces) a narrow strait

It started with a trace
A faint trickle,
A mere scratching of the throat
Then this weight
And my life was out of the door
