Winter Reigns (Posted on 2007-07-02) Difficulty: 2 of 5

We all deserve to have the beautiful things in life introduced to us. The following poem is one of those beautiful things. Besides being a very nice poem per se, it also contains a wonderfully clever hidden quality that is not at all apparent at first glance. Can you find it?

Winter Reigns

Shimmering, gleaming, glistening glow--
Winter reigns, splendiferous snow!
Won't this sight, this stainless scene,
Endlessly yield days supreme?

Eying ground, deep piled, delights
Skiers scaling garish heights.
Still like eagles soaring, glide
Eager racers; show-offs slide.

Ecstatic children, noses scarved--
Dancing gnomes, seem magic carved--
Doing graceful leaps. Snowballs,
Swishing globules, sail low walls.

Surely year-end's special lure
Eases sorrow we endure,
Every year renews shared dream,
Memories sweet, that timeless stream.

-- Mary Youngquist
