(also spelled: stymy)

-verb (trans.; often passive)
1. to hinder or thwart
2. (golf) to impede with a stymie
3. (golf) (formerly) a situation on the green in which an opponent's ball is blocking the line between the hole and the ball about to be played; an obstructing ball may now be lifted and replaced by a marker
4. a situation of obstruction

Often I tried to pass this way
Only to be stymied by the angel’s stare
A Cherub it isn’t quite despite looks
Death in a benign mask
