"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February

    Oh guys, do you want to know what is confussing?
    Listening to @Lynne's explanation about the difference between:
    - to flicker
    - to sparkle
    - to shimmer
    - to glitter
    - to twinkle

    To be honest, I'm still, and even more, confused.

    Stars don't flicker or shimmer @april, but they can twinkle!
  • aprilapril Moderator Posts: 9,785 mod
    Can they glitter or shine, @mheredge ?
  • mheredgemheredge Wordsmith Here and therePosts: 24,139 mod
    You can say that stars are shining. They can also glitter @april.
