Poetry and a Giveaway

Recently a dear friend of ours was cleaning out and gave us this beautiful photo album. I have decided to give it away to one of my readers.

The other day I came across this poem by Robert Frost. It was called "One Guess" and it puzzled me. I looked it up and found out the answer. I am not going to tell you the answer just yet. To enter this giveaway post a comment on my blog telling me the right answer. I encourage you to try to figure it out first and if you can’t (or to confirm your answer) you can do like I did and do a Google search.

As Robert Frost said “One Guess.” Each person can only enter once. That doesn’t mean that you can’t put a link on your Facebook or Twitter page or blog about it but I can’t accept more than one entry per person. This giveaway is only open to readers in the United States. Sorry for the people who live elsewhere. (By the way, if you can leave your email address or a way to contact you so that if you win I can contact you.) Enter before Tuesday, March 2, 2010 at 11:59 PM to get your name in the drawing.

Now here is the poem. Good luck!

One Guess
by Robert Frost

He has dust in his eyes and a fan for a wing,
A leg akimbo with which he can sing,
And a mouthful of dyestuff instead of a sting.

Hi Kati!

I guessed, and wasn't sure if it was right because the last line had me stumped. So I looked it up, and I think I had the right answer. But I'll e-mail it to you so other folks can still guess!
