Bottoms Up -- Spring is in the Air

Question

Comes often between as's almost now

Willingly, readily, in the future somehow

Up up in the sky, over seas it soars

All in good time, they say, take yours

Stand on the street, you might come by me

Then maybe a kid, tickled pink they could be

With such a great deal, the odds are remote

Yet this could help you, to stay afloat

You've made your bed now, so on it you must lay

Too, ironic this vow, to love honor and obey

Solve each of the five, two line riddles above

Then follow the clues, for some additional love

expressions

nope

maxim?

not it.

3.Cone?

4.Fluke?

5.Tough?

Hey Wilson - so good to see you here. Have my money on you for the finale. None of the above will help you get there tho.

divorce

chance, risk?

stranger?

hello ana_stassia - good answers all but not what I'm looking for. re 4. the bit about "remote odds" is kind of a nuance of the answers meaning and not really important as a clue. not my proudest, sorry.

raft, rope or barge?

Dude, nailed another. Good stuff.

raft as in a great many; a large group brought together usually indiscriminately and the kind you can float on

sail/sale

bond

sorry clinton, neither.

ticket? or saver?

dog? or tie? (i've been looking up gambling terms)

sorry chic, neither.

promise

close for the meaning of one half of this one.

I'm not sure what that final riddle means. What does it mean "Then follow the clues for additional love?"

commitment?

sorry chic, not that.

Amuse

nope, chicory's first guesses on this one were the closest so far, I think.

similar to Chicory's answer

Vow

Oops Vow was part of the line so another guess Oath/ Pledge

not far off, just need similar that ironically ties into the first line of this one.

a rose service STARS

ooh, just got it. not it but really clever for 5.

I'm not sure what that final riddle means. What does it mean "Then follow the clues for additional love?"

There are five mini-riddles (one per couplet) each with a one word answer and then the five answers are further involved in a puzzle to find the final answer. Each couplet might contain any number of plays on words like homophones, puns, double entendre, etc. (reading them very literally can be helpful). Ultimately though, I would call them what am I's. Here are a couple of links to similar ones from before: I will say the clues could be any part of the OP that is not the five couplets. Hope this helps. Dont mind answering any questions you might have. Thanks for checking out the riddle.

Here are my guess

death

Hope? Dream?

Hello Eragon - good guesses but not what you will need for the next step.

Sorry, must have missed this one but am afraid none of those are the answers I'm looking for.
