Treasure the Moment

Question

Posted · Report post

A little bit different than the ones from before

Still solve these eight, then for grins, one more

Gives credit where credit is due you've got

So when they're in yours, take your best shot

One or the other, determined will tell

Clears out with a stick for this it can spell

Afterwards ridden with an admission of me

Shines bright on its face so superficially

From the lands on high as a manner of speaking

Passing strong wind, an outburst of shrieking

A rock of ages you stand out in a crowd

All the more sure when you shout it out loud

Authorize to print maybe gets the point across

This passage one gains then forthwith a loss

Push and shove, tuck and roll, a good turn bears repeating

Always obliged am I, this demand is want for completing

Known often with the blues, one printed one dyed

An instruction of sorts, worn on the outside

From a long lost friend I've pirated the lot

So now for top marks, this you must spot

FWIW/shameless plug - here are some links to similar ones from before:

Citations? A bibliography?

hey there Thalia - you and dD are both on track. guess I would say half right

Hey, hey. Y'all still on vacation?

2.Which/Witch

3.Guilt/Guilt

4.Gael/Gale

hey Wilson - no, we're home again and back to the salt mines for me. all three above are spot on. good stuff.

edited the answer.... just in case Wilson is onto something

:ph34r:

dD - yes indeed, Wilson was onto something and so are you. minor adjustment to your answer in the update below.

So #1 would be

Cites/Sights with "s" at the end?

I seem to have missed the add ons at the end. Oops.

knead/need

hey t_mo - that's it! was worried about this one. felt I had to make these couplets a little less definitive or once the theme came out they would be too easy. wasn't sure I had left enough there to get this one. can I ask which you got first?

So #1 would be

Cites/Sights with "s" at the end?

hey Thalia - right on, well done!

bass/base

not that

maybe chord/cord

oh, that's clever but not the answer you'll need in the end.

cursor/curser

not it, the first one makes a stronger case but think in total there's a better fit.

oh no, another very sharp guess. cant quite justify the second half of the second line (the loss bit) imo. again, great guess.

#5: ball/bawl

or whale/wail

hey hey LJ - not what I have in mind for this one but certainly see where you're coming from. Good thoughts, both.

Hey Dej Mar - funny, a great fit, but there was no intended 9th couplet with an answer similar in theme to the eight. the ninth is meant as a clue to a puzzle involving the eight answers resulting in a "final answer". the long lost friend I can now say refers to MrsP, a cohort here who's riddles often had answers like my theme for the eight couplets. if you care to, check out (my favorite) or any of the other links in the OP to get a better idea of the format of this one.

assents, ascents

do, due

OR

overdo, overdue

'fraid not what I'm after for this one

nod, gnawed

yeah, not it but get what you mean.

Other answers that work, but not as good.

hey Qesh - not familiar with that first reference - will have to research - so not it.

gneiss, nice

yes indeed, right? (the answer in bold above)

ceil (a pale blue), seal (a stamp affixed to a document to attest to its authenticity)

but not that one, sorry

Tune/Toon

hey Molly Mae - nope, not it

collar/caller?

I don't quite know if it fits with the end of the last line

um, still not it am afraid. thinking this one may need a little hint as it has gotten so many different responses. gonna give it a bit yet.
