  1. He skins the apple

    So maticoulusly

    Counting the slices

    One, two, three

    Over and over

    His blade licks

    Counting the slices

    Four, five, six

    Now this apple

    Is looking mighty fine

    But he continues to slice

    Seven, eight, nine

    Finally the apple

    Is skinned and done

    But he picks another

    And starts counting from one

  2. rainbow

    sorry Qesh. not where i was going with this one, but nice guess.

    Hi deannaart, long time no see... or riddle :D

    either a comet or a star?

    hey there dragon! yea its been a long time. one of your answers is in the actual answer. but alone, neither is right.

    A star?

    Shiny, sparkling, celestial ring (Twinkle, twinkle little star)

    To you my heart does sing (it's a song)

    Oh so curious at to

    What in heaven are you? (How I wonder what you are)

    Emerald, ruby, diamond maybe? (Like a diamond in the sky)

    I sing your song daily

    I think maybe ill try

    To give you a buy

    But alas- out of my range (stars are far away)

    The sorrow is so strange

    So shine on sparkling ring

    Upon your pedestal i sing

    Ill be sure to look at you

    Every time i pass through

    Wondering how far

    From reach you are (Up above the world so high)

    hello thalia. while your answer alone is not right, your explination of your answer holds the correct one, so i'll award it to you. congrats!

    Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

  3. The rings of Saturn?

    hey rainthinker. thanx for starting this one off. awesome guess!! i see the parallel here between the ring and rings. unfortunately that's not what i had in mind for this particular riddle. but don't give up hope! the answer is out there. please keep trying.

    hello all. its been a while since ive been on. but true to form this is one of my standard metaphor riddles. to bust the riddle, you have to find the metaphor of what im writing about. as always, have fun, and happy riddling!!!

  5. a brainwave out of the blue...???

    hehe... good thinking edm. i always love your guesses. they get me thinking. this, unfortunately is not where i'm headed with this particular metaphor, though. keep trying!!

  6. The little princess

    Sat on her throne

    Quite frustrated

    But never alone

    For the Queen was there

    Always to guide

    Helping her gain

    A new sense of pride

    She sat and sat

    In endless doubt

    And for her efforts

    There was a drought

    In that throne room

    What could be done?

    As time went by

    The princess wanted to run

    But, finally,

    They found the trick

    The princess and queen

    And implemented it quick

    So, soon the rain

    Began to fall

    And all were pleased

    Yes, one and all.

  7. "Climb every mountain....Ford every stream..."

    "Ain't no mountain high enough, Ain't no valley low enough..."

    nice singing! not it though. sorry!

    When the going gets tough...........?

    Hope you feel better soon.

    hello to you too, wilson. Great try, and thank you very much for the well wishes. not there yet, though.

    Hey d - share Wilson's sentiments for sure.

    the itsy bitsy spider

    Take care.

    thanks pg. and.... congratulations!!!!! you busted me!


    i hope you all enjoyed this little riddle. thanx for coming out to play with me. i'll try to have another up here soon.

    a life changing experience which puts someone at the top....???

    sorry edm, pg beat you to this one. thanx for all the great guesses though!

    break through the glass ceiling ?

    Hope you're feeling better today!

    thanx for the guesses and wishes of good health. pg got the answer to this one though. we'll play again soon!

  8. hello everyone! sorry to have kept you all waiting so long on this one. it seems my health has taken a nasty turn on me. i will only be making short trips out of bed today, but i will try to be on as often as possible. thanx for your patience with me. now, on to the riddle...

    i love reading all the guesses you all have come up with. either i'm getting better at this, or so bad no no one can guess. EDM, you were hot on the trail with your first answer, i hope you can figure out why. this is not a one word answer. i guess that might have been a hint. again, the answer is very specific, not a generalized answer. good luck, and happy riddling!

  9. pick yourself up & try again / perseverance / triumph of the downtrodden

    Good to see you again D! :D

    good to see you again as well tiger lily. while your answers are kind of the general idea, there is a very specific metaphor here. Keep trying!

    The "slings and arrows of outrageous fortune" seems excessive, but maybe not from the ladybug's point of view...

    but maybe--



    He that has and a little tiny wit--

    With hey, ho, the wind and the rain,--

    Must make content with his fortunes fit,

    For the rain it raineth every day.


    I love this ladybug image.

    I love your ideaas!!! they are getting more exact, which is what i'm looking for, but still not it. i love the ladybug image too... thanx! keep going!

    trying till you suceed....??? or overcoming obstacles to get to the top...???

    achieving goals...???

    again, we're getting more generalized here. i am looking for something very specific. think you can beat me once again? give it a shot. i've got faith in you.
  10. taking a carefullly planned vacation

    I always enjoy your metaphors, Deannart, and as for getting to start it off-- luck of the night owls!

    Why thank you for the lovely compliments! While well executed, you answer is still way off base. that' the only guidance you'll get from me this early on. happy riddling. i'm off for tonight, but will see you all, and hopefully some new answers tomorrow! Night Den!!

  11. start of the work week. petals are the weekend.

    Nice answer, chicory. not what i'm looking for, but just the caliber of guess i would expect from you. oh and thanks for starting this one up. hope you enjoyed the one before it!!

  12. A little ladybug scampers

    Up the flower's stalk

    Nothing out of the ordinary

    To make her fuss or balk

    Then she takes a look up

    And , oh what can be seen!

    Why it's a little boy

    With his watering canteen!

    He dumps it on the flowers

    Swooshing the ladybug to the ground

    Now there's water and mud

    and general muck all around

    The ladybug resolves herself

    To get back on that stem

    She'll try one more time

    She's determined to do it again

    There's no stopping till

    She makes it to the top

    Then on the soft, warm petals

    She'll joyfully drop

    2nd metaphor in a while. still getting back into the swing of things. any constructive criticism is greatly appreciated. other than that, have fun! happy riddling!!

  13. maybe a bird....???

    or just wanting to play...???

    I'm getting hungry with all this thinking.....:D

    congrats EDM! your hunger got you thinking on the right track!!!

    a bird

    although, a couple of you came up with an answer i liked just as much which was

    a kite

    Thanx for playing guys. sorry it took so long to respond. computer was on the fritz. dropping another one now!
