I can't make any of these fit adequately no matter how hard I try to force a square peg into a round hole, so I'd guess you're neither

making hand shadows, nor grilling hot dogs, nor describing two Frodo Bagginses being simultaneously bitten by gollums at Mt Doom

I was gonna say "hand shadow puppets" but it seems Plasmid already has that one covered.

:P

Nothing yet. Here's a re-write. The first draft is lousy. Sorry.

The first heading east

Foot in stride

Trailing a candle—

It’s “you” behind

Two grades looking back

Not failing but near

A pole before them

the last unheard.

...What's in a name? That which we call a rose

By any other name would smell as sweet.

have yet to witness a lousy draft or other from you, señor Shakee.

I think that plainglazed has it.

I should have realized this might be a different type of riddle than usual when I started reaching at straws like cloned hobbits.

Hi EDM, Plasmid, PG, and all you riddle-heads . . . nice to see this site up and running again.

Not sure if anyone's got this yet. Answer?

I thought plainglazed was hinting at it with

"what's in a name" on his earlier post.

But just to be sure, both versions describe the letters of the name of the Riddle

each letter of the answer is described (mostly physically) by each couple of lines of the R i dd l e.

with yours, am often torn between a desire to post an answer and leaving it for others to enjoy/get hooked. always a great challenge and great fun. thanks alot Sir Shakelot!

nvm...

Lol, I was puzzling it out, and I got everything except the R. And I was so proud, I almost posted that, and then I realized pg already had it. :blush:

Nice one, shakee. :) You made me feel happy about myself. :P
