What is the Smartest Letter of the Alphabet?

A sort of silly poem I had to write as part of a Creative Writing course I took in 10th grade.

I imagine it to be the last in queue:

a line first, then a diagonal cross that leaves you

astonished, amazed

that later melts into a familiar line,

just a simple little line.

almost as knowing as a human, it

can hide very well;

its siblings s and c are mentioned frequently,

and display the same jingle, the same bell sound,

but still it remains

in hiding,


knowing not to come out too frequently,

so that it is never wasted, never exhausted, never dead

everlasting, infinite instead.

and it hides so well

that it is the only sister of the alphabet

that has not once

appeared in my words.

**Note: The answer is Z, in case you couldn't figure it out.
