Before me is stride,
Paraded by pride.
After is hope,
Her possible scope.
I'm but a girl,
Who's fourth in the whirl.

What am I?

    $\begingroup$ @manshu Why don't you answer the question instead of revealing your guess in a comment? $\endgroup$ – rybo111 Jan 29 '16 at 15:23
  • $\begingroup$ naah...answering a question is cumbersome. Commenting is easy. And it's not like you are in problem if you dont get the answer, is it? $\endgroup$ – manshu Jan 29 '16 at 15:29

Stride, paraded by pride

perhaps a march?

Hope, her possible scope

seems like may would fit, an auxiliary verb (and feminine name) that indicates possibility, a wish, or permission.

but a girl, who's fourth in the whirl

April is another feminine name, and the fourth month of the year, falling after March and before May
