A Poet's LoveRiddles are little poems or phrases that pose a question that needs answering. Riddles frequently rhyme, but this is not a requirement.
Poets, especially when in love, have been known to conceal messages in their verses. Can you find James Robinson Planche's hidden love interest in these verses from his 1881 work "Songs and Poems"?
Beauty to claim, amongst the fairest place,
Enchanting manner, unaffected grace,
Arch without malice, merry without wise,
Truth ever on her lips as in her eyes;
Reticent not from sullenness or pride,
Intensity of feeling but to hide;
Can any doubt such being there may be?
Each line I pen, points, matchless maid, to thee!
HintPlanche gives a clue to his own riddle in the last line.
The first letter of each line spells out her name.
