Puzzle by Lynn Lempel, edited by Will Shortz
"Sheep!" Read it and weep! It says "sheep!" Not ewe, lamb or ram, nor LAWRENCEWELK, CLAMBISQUE or FAIRAMOUNT (an awfully long way to go for three sets of circled letters spelling EWE, LAMB, and RAM) -- SHEEP! The rhyme says SHEEP!
No wonder she can't find them!
