"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

    The game will last three weeks, @right @Lynne ?
    When is the dead line for our guesses?
    What do you call this GTT? GTT Final 2016?

    To be honest, I was not and still am not ready for challenges, but my guesses are: Truth, lies and nation.
  • Shiny03Shiny03 Posts: 2,701 ✭✭✭✭
    @april But I think your answers are more correct than mine. :) It's been a while, how are you?

    I don't think so, @Shiny03 .

    Yes, it's been a while and I'm stil searching for new hope. :)

    I'll try with: 1.) fight for creating a better world, 2) unrequited love and 3.) bad habits.
  • Shiny03Shiny03 Posts: 2,701 ✭✭✭✭
    Searching for new hope? What does that mean? @april

    @Rema fight for creating a better world--> That's why I said 'dream' as Martin Luther King said I have a dream.

    I really have no confidence in those answers. Any answer makes sense and seems possible. I'm going to join Today's session to listen to Lynne's explanation.
  • LynneLynne Your Teacher HomePosts: 8,631 mod
    The answers were: 2016 - Brexit and Lies.

    Congratulations April and Shiny.

    "Brexit" was in my list of guesses!
    The word "America lost" in one of the songs restrained me to put it as my answer.

    Congratulations, @Shiny03 .
  • RemaRema Posts: 984 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Congratulations @april and @Shiny03 :)
  • aprilapril Moderator Posts: 9,772 mod
    Thank you, @Rema, but I haven't won yet.
    Anyway, I'm convinced that my brain is still working quite well. :)
  • Shiny03Shiny03 Posts: 2,701 ✭✭✭✭
    Thank you @Rema , but as @april said, "I haven't won yet". The game is not over and we still have the draw left.

    There were two correct answers, so it won't be a draw, it will be a coin toss. So, @Shiny03 @april - heads or tails?
