Sunday Cryptoquote Spoiler – 06/06/21

About Voltaire - Voltaire Foundation

One merit of poetry few persons will deny:  it says more and in fewer words than prose.”   —   Voltaire

(For me, poetry implies and hints at a lot of things, and actually “says” very little.  Sure, there is some poetry that doesn’t require a degree in linguistics.  But heavy metaphors and similes, and subjective imagery, can be incomprehensible to me.  Just give it to me straight up.  No chaser.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    This one was a challenge. I kept wanting “fewer” to be “never” and “says” to be “that.”

    I know what you mean, Muse! I think bot “will” and “words” are what got me going yesterday. (Today we had a few more *standard* cryps!) — YUR
