Do you think those words with 'silent' letters ever feel resentment at not being pronounced? *Think*

Here's looking at you Chanukah, Phlegm, Asthma, Apropos, etc. etc.


How about “corpseman?” 🤣

You'd think that there should be a way to remember words with silent letters. Perhaps a mnemonic? *Laugh*

Congratulations to CJ & Muse: Playing Catch Up and Jessica - mini hiatus for guessing right!

And now, the last round for all the marbles, so think long and hard about this one.

Guess #4: They say I'm 'weary of the blues', but all I do is celebrate my heritage and remind everyone of why our 'dreams remain deferred'. I roam the streets of Harlem, where I wish to let 'America be America again'.
Who am I? And under which card will you find me? Guess right and guess true! *Bigsmile*
Card A ... good luck Jessica *Heart*

Congratulations to Jessica - mini hiatus , Amyaurora , and CJ & Muse: Playing Catch Up !

You three get to pick in the next round and your choices are below! *Bigsmile*

Guess #3: Her poems about 'Camp' are not your typical All-American fantasies; dark tales of incarceration are laced
within her words in an era when Japanese-Americans were seen as the enemies. Who am I? And under which card am I hiding? Guess well and guess true! *Bigsmile*

Guess #2: She 'knows why the caged bird sings', but don't be fooled by that most famous autobiography;
her poems have also earned her numerous awards and worldwide recognition.

ROUND CLOSED! *Bigsmile*

Who's in the mood to play the easiest game you'll ever...well play? *Bigsmile*
All you have to do is guess which card contains which information and you win...but wait!
This game is going to be a process of elimination.
What does that mean?
*Bullet* I will put up two cards for each round - each card contains information.
However, you must guess which card has the correct*Checkg* information.
*Bullet* In the comments below, just write which letter (card A or card B) you think is correct.
*Bullet* At the end of each round (closed at my discretion!), only those who guessed correctly
will move on to the next round.
*Bullet* This goes on until its wheedled down to one grand winner.
(or more depending again on when I choose to shut it down completely)
*Bullet* Correct picks will be tagged/notified to participate in the next round, so please do not comment again if your guess was wrong in the previous round! *Stop*
*Bullet* Got all that? Great! Then let's go!
*Bullet* Ooh, what do you win?? Let's see...gps, an MB of choice and my undying devotion. Hah!

Guess #1: In honor of National Poetry Month, I am considered one of the most famous English poets of all time.
You might know me by a little known poem about 'losing Paradise'.
So under which card am I hiding? Guess well and guess true!
