Day 13’s optional prompt, to write a riddle poem. ~ via The NaPoWriMo Website
So with “Day 13’s Prompt” I have chosen a three poems by Sylvia Plath, Jane Austen and Philip M. Haskin; then after that is my interpretation to the Challenge!
Happy reading and hope you all enjoy!
I’m a riddle in nine syllables,
An elephant, a ponderous house,
A melon strolling on two tendrils.
O red fruit, ivory, fine timbers!
This loaf’s big with its yeasty rising.
Money’s new-minted in this fat purse.
I’m a means, a stage, a cow in calf.
I’ve eaten a bag of green apples,
Boarded the train there’s no getting off.
By Sylvia Plath
CHARADES by Jane Austen (1775-1817)
“My first, tho’ water, cures no thirst, My next alone has soul, And when he lives upon my first,
He then is called my whole.”
