Silly little riddle I wrote

17 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

A turn about the town share we

The apple of Aries’ eye

The other than self in come with me

A younger form of thy

A silver screen not meant for teen

A hundred meters square

One of a pod propped with a rod

The final gasp of air

The proper choice when one must choose

A westward turn from south

The proper place to find these clues

A claim to shoot your mouth.

Cute, but I'm clueless. What's the general subject?

Here's a hint

Each stanza is a separate riddle for 3 different words that make a simple sentence.

I'm more at home with analytical puzzles; this is of

a different type. Like, nothing ... then, aha!

Haven't had the aha yet.

And, it's not your worst poetry ... ;)

Ok. Last hints before I spoil it.

Hint 1

Each line on a stanza is a different way of describing the word for the whole stanza.

Hint 2

Last Stanza, second line. Which way do you turn if you face west from south? What does that have to do with the rest of the lines.

So maybe this wasn't that good. Or maybe just too hard.

A turn about the town share we

Hmmm. Some kind of turn ...

The apple of Aries’ eye

Aries is a Ram, so what would catch his attention and spark his desire ...

The other than self in come with me

Come with me is a command to a second person. The other than self would be ...

A younger form of thy

Thy is an archaic way to say ....

U, Ewe, You - YOU

A silver screen not meant for teen

A movie that's not for teens

A hundred meters square

Hmmm ... a unit of measure for 100 square meters

One of a pod propped with a rod

What comes in pods? Peas? What is a pea propped with a rod?

The final gasp of air

A I {R}

R, are - ARE

The proper choice when one must choose

The right choice

A westward turn from south

A right hand turn

The proper place to find these clues

The right place

A claim to shoot your mouth.

Freedom of speech - the right to say whatever you want

RIGHT

Solution: YOU ARE RIGHT

I was thinking of Aries' offspring, I usually hear the term "apple of my eye" referring to children.

A westward turn from south

A right hand turn

This I was thinking it was left. If you are coming from the South, you would turn left to turn west.

Now that I get the idea, I'd do better if you do another of these.

Nice.

Thanks

I really enjoyed the riddle, since I'm not much of a math wiz.

Words are a lot more fun for me, I carry a grammer hammer and use it liberally on my teenagers.

The poetry was actually pretty awesome in my humble opinion, keep it up WB.

Bona,

Thanks for the vote of confidence, lol.

Did you catch the lines I wrote for Pi? (count the letters)

I can do worse, look out.

I'll be climbing towers for the next three days, lotta hours, when I get back I owe you guys a post on the ark and then I get to torture Bonanova with some Vogon Poetry. (Don't Panic!)

Peace

Can someone please explain this to me?

A westward turn from south.

I just cannot seem to picture this one.

A westward turn from facing south perhaps?

I dunno

You're going south then going west.

Even in poetry, that would be a right turn.

Thanks! Maybe that's why I didn't do so well in English Lit I never got the poetry

All I could think of is, if you are coming from the South, you are heading North, but it makes sense now.
