Question

Guest

Bare and pointed,

Earthy sbustance washed away.

Nothing is left,

That nay a temptest can destroy.

Few are dressed,

In glistening layers of fine array.

Majestic thy stand,

Only to amplify but few a ploy.

Hardly one to sit out a "not a" riddle...

All that lingers once you've died,

Left without your skin.

At times enshrined or mummified:

You're a skeleton

does 'taht nay a temptest can destroy' mean it CAN be destroyed or that it CANT?

correction-- "that" nay (no), a tempest can destroy"

the "nay" meaning no; for your 'cant'...thanks for point out my misspelled "that"thumbsup.gif
