Question

Posted · Report post

Alright, so it has been a while since I've posted on BD...and it's been even longer since I came up with a word puzzle...so I thought I would try another one.

Through rings I can be seen

And by my rings I am known

Through thousands of years

My legend has grown

My death is historic

In more ways than one

I fell in controversy

And now my time is done

But my name will live on

For being a hero to man

If you're old enough to see me

Next year is when you can

Who am I?

"pluto"

Nice try, both of you...interested in hearing how you both got the same answer...however it is not correct.

Is it....

Saturn / Cronus

Rings

thrown down by Jupiter / Zeus after consuming all his other children

Less than a light year from Earth though, so that throws off my guess unless

there is another explanation...

Good answer...closer for multiple reasons, but still not correct...

Prometheus?

Wow...that was quick! Good job!

Through rings I can be seen Prometheus is a moon of Saturn, and often crosses paths with it's rings

And by my rings I am known It WAS also the world's oldest living tree (tree rings = age)

Through thousands of years

My legend has grown Both a reference to the tree (~5000 years old) and the Prometheus myth

My death is historic

In more ways than one Again both because of the god Prometheus and the tree

I fell in controversy "Fell" being a clue to the tree part...it is controversial why the tree was cut down

And now my time is done

But my name will live on

For being a hero to man Prometheus stole fire from the gods and gave it to man

If you're old enough to see me

Next year is when you can Very random reference to a movie coming out next year called Prometheus that will likely be rated "R" (it is supposed to be a prequel to the Alien movies...)
