Four amid the bending canes, handles to the west,


This line makes me think of sunflowers as they follow the Sun. Handles to the west might refer to sometime between afternoon and sunset?

All negative so far. Interesting guesses though. Some of you know me. You understand I use kew words, clues, and metaphor in ways unique to this style of ridddle but which will inevitable reveal the answer. You can land this big fish if you brain it out.

Four amid the bending canes handle 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 lakes but slipping in the streams,
Bars above below the stars and all points in between.

Spoiler for Not sure about the first line, but the rest makes me think of...

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.

:blush: As far fetched as it may sound, I still think CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS could work. Let me explain verse by verse.
Four amid the bending canes, handles to the west,
Admiral Columbus lead four voyages west in his lifetime. :thumbsup:
The name recalls a giant, to some considered best.
This refering to Christopher Columbus, who was one of the best mariners of the time. :thumbsup:
Four mouths oh so thirsty, see them open wide
At age fifty-one, Columbus was old, sick, and no longer welcome in his old home base of Hispaniola. On his fourth and final voyage, FOUR SHIPS under the command of Admiral Columbus sailed West THIRSTY to find the Strait of Malacca. :thumbsup:
Drinking in the open air from icy cup of sky.
The ships sails drink in the open air... :thumbsup:
Leaping over water yet slipping in the streams,
Leaping over oceans and slipping into river streams. :thumbsup:
Bars above the treetops and all points in between.
The sail masts barring above the treetops and all points in between. :thumbsup:
IT WORKS,....... RIGHT??
