A compacted awk one liner...

echo " one two three four " | awk '{n=split($0,A);S=A[n];{for(i= +n-1;i>0;i--)S=S" "A[i]}}END{print S}'

    Here's another awk solution (different strategy, and slightly shorter when compacted - Update: this reverses every line, and if your's did the same, i.e, without the END block, it would still be shorter than this...oh well):
    #!/bin/awk -f { for (i=1; i<=NF/2; i++) { t=$i $i = $(NF-i+1) $(NF-i+1)=t } print }
