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:

Band/Banned

....Also, from before the knead/need one...i got Knead first...i used to do pottery on a wheel and "a good turns deserves repeating" made me think of that, then i started thinking about wedging the clay and kneading seemed to fit as well, but obviously the second part fit "need" so i went with that

I like your answer...and it might be right (pun intended), but I think write/rite might be more fitting.

for # 8, i keep getting stuck on dress/dress

dress blues, dress (instruction, get dressed...), dress, clothing worn on the outside

so either you are sneakier than i remember or i've been at work about 8 too many hours today.... either way :ph34r: works for me :D

Known often with the blues, one printed one dyed

tints (colors; stains [blues])

An instruction of sorts,

tense (the tense of a verb can provide information)

worn on the outside

tents (if "worn", a tent is on the outside [worn is also an example of the tense of wear])

Another possible solution is:

pens (inks [often blues]), pins (the placement of a marker, usually a pin, to indicate going "steady" - a message of sorts)

---------

Other close, but not quite, solutions:

grieve (to mourn [blues]), greave (a piece of leg armor worn on the outside)

moan (to lament [blues]), mown (grass is cropped [worn] and grows outside, usually)

sighs (moans [blues]), size (clothes measurement often printed on a tag)

now that's a long day/night, nice interpretation but this one is also fits the spelling concern as the others.

tense (the tense of a verb can provide information)

tents (if "worn", a tent is on the outside [worn is also an example of the tense of wear])

some really good thoughts above, Dej Mar, but none the same as mine.

can't fit in the blues but no harm in trying

Tye/tie

hey rsn - sorry, not what you'll need for the finale. thanks for visiting, please do come back.

the other seven couplets addressed one word per line. this is not necessarily the case for this one. but there is still an order to the two homophones.

I actually thought about that, but I couldn't make the last part fit. Thinking about it now, though, it really does--up to and including a play on the word "worn".

I hope it's right, so PG can get out of my head. =P

another potential alternate answer save for the necessity of the one intended to figure the final answer. and think the instruction bit is a little stretched with the above.

Wring/Ring

gotta say not it M M

Coates/coats

am drawing a blank here myself dD - am guessing the Coates is a musician. I have a niece who goes by Molly Mae and whose last name is Coates. hmm. but not it.

jam/jamb

clever once again but still no

sax/sacks

nope

dont think I've stretched quite that far. more a matter of creative parsing

that's not it but real good thinking

#3- guilt/gilt?

hey t_l - not it.

Wail/ Veil

'fraid not, rsn

jeans, genes

Known often with the blues, - jeans

one printed one dyed

An instruction of sorts, - genes (DNA, type matching)

worn on the outside - jeans

nice analysis Dej Mar! Correct

Answer: gene/jean - Known often with the blues, one printed one dyed - gene comonly known with blueprint; jean commonly known with being (dyed) blue

Gives credit where credit is due you've got

So when they're in yours, take your best shot - cites/sights

One or the other, determined will tell

Clears out with a stick for this it can spell - which/witch

Afterwards ridden with an admission of me

Shines bright on its face so superficially - guilt/gilt

From the lands on high as a manner of speaking

Passing strong wind, an outburst of shrieking - gael/gale

A rock of ages you stand out in a crowd

All the more sure when you shout it out loud - boulder/bolder

Authorize to print maybe gets the point across

This passage one gains then forthwith a loss - write/rite

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

Always obliged am I, this demand is want for completing - knead/need

Known often with the blues, one printed one dyed

An instruction of sorts, worn on the outside - gene/jean

Wait...Uncle PG? Is that you? =P

After a quick check, I've confirmed that most (if not all) pairs have one word that are either shared band names or released album titles. Perhaps that's just coincidence, though.
