But what's an appropriate definition of door yard?  I love the term, quaint 
but entirely useable - sorry no Whitman available to look up.

Just a brief mention - I've had 3.5 inches of rain since Thursday night - 
lovely, lovely rain.

Another term I've encountered only in American literature is "door yard".
Does this have any relevance in our current thread? Is this term still used?

Probably only when studying Whitman.
I might start using it, though.
