Spoiler for giant?

Edit:

Four amid the bending canes, handles to the west,
The name recalls a giant, to some considered best.
Four mouths oh so thirsty, see them open wide
Drinking in the open air from icy cup of sky.
Leaping over water yet slipping in the streams,
Bars above the treetops and all points in between.


Is it my imagination or are these getting harder :lol:

I recently put this up in class for my ten year old Taiwanese ESL students and one them pegged the first line in a matter of minutes, but he couldn't solve the riddle because he wasn't familiar with the answer. Harder than Mona Lisa? Nah! :D

Ever since you said forget the star reference, I've been completely lost, but I'm kind of thinking, maybe, it has something to do with geograpy??? I like preflop's answer, was also thinking that, but they are five not four.

I assumed the best giant was Willie Mays, but neither Willie nor Maize leads me anywhere.
