"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

    Sorry my misspelling. Read please as "Why didn't the shark swallow the clownfish?

    Maybe the shark wants rather looking at such a beautiful fish.

    Are you sure that shark's aesthetic feelings are stronger than hunger?

    Have you never heard that beauty can overcome hunger!

    Because it tasted funny.

    Am I right?

    And I think Paulette is correct - it is a clown fish!

    Why didn’t the shark swallow the clown fish? - Because clown fish is funny. Because fish tasted funny.
    (Funny can also means strange, not normal; food can taste funny. This doesn’t taste right. This tastes weird).

    Maybe the shark isn't hungry at all!

    That's a nice explanation. It is a fine example of how English can be used to make jokes or riddles because the same words can sometimes have such different meanings.

    @homanmih was it because he was laughing too much?

    It seems like the spring is coming soon. So I'd like to suggest you a spring riddle.
    If April showers bring May flowers, what do Mayflowers bring?
