Who is Silvia? what is she,
That all our swains commend her?
Holy, fair, and wise is she;
The heaven such grace did lend her,
That she might admirèd be.
Is she kind as she is fair?
For beauty lives with kindness.
Love doth to her eyes repair,
To help him of his blindness,
And, being helped, inhabits there.
Then to Silvia let us sing,
That Silvia is excelling;
She excels each mortal thing
Upon the dull earth dwelling:
To her let us garlands bring.
Let it never be said that the Den does not feed the soul as it exercises the mind.
OK, now the puzzle, compliments of Raymond Smullyan, somewhat of a new hero for me:
There are twin sisters.
One lies and one tells the truth.
One is named Sylvia.
How can you discover which sister is Sylvia by asking one three-word question?
There may be more than one answer.
