Christmas Countdown : Verse 4

The fourth verse of Snowflake Kisses wraps up the first stanza of this poem. Congratulations! We made it to the end of the beginning!

Four lines per block and twenty-four verses in total, how many stanzas are in this poem?

Those who know me would get a chuckle out of my attempt to form a math puzzle. As interesting and fascinating as the science of numbers is, even as early as elementary school, I always had a penchant for words and languages.

Winning a contest I didn’t know I had even entered, much to my surprise, my Grade-1 composition was posted on the main bulletin board of the school. Early in the first year of high school, I was intrigued by intricate numerical equations that looked like foreign language, but the introduction of French verb conjugations sent my mind into melodic trances that left me daydreaming through math equations.

Once again, selecting a word from today’s fourth line, I vacillated like a pendulum between the word true and the word dream. To continue with the truth of mathematics or to wander into dreamy linguistics?
