Riddle poem 2

Tomorrow's post is gonna be serious.  (Serious face with dimple: *<):i  )

Today's post, however, is just seriously hard.  I give you: Riddle Poem #2!

On a dish lay ten gold rings 
Ten birds swoop with silver wings
Each takes one and flies away
On the platter nine rings stay

How is this possible?

Wanna try another?  Here is Riddle Poem #1

*****Update: major hint just added to the comments.  Don't peek unless you've given it a good go, m'kay?******* :D


  1. Having IQ failure. I think I'll go try your other riddle. :)

  2. Tee hee! If I hadn't written it, I'd probably feel the same. But when I tell you the answer, you'll think: "That was way simpler than I thought." :D

    I'll edit to link the first riddle. It was a couple of days ago. :)

  3. The only thing I can figure so far is that they all take the same one. It says "each takes one"... leaving 9?

  4. Robyn, thanks for playing! :D That was Pat's answer, too. I finally gave him this hint:

    One of the birds has a name...

    Bwa ha


  5. Shoot. I was with Robyn on this one. Now to think of birds with names...

  6. Allow me to clarify. The name of the bird is in the riddle. :D ????? Anyone? Need to hone my riddlin' skills, obviously.

  7. Woodstock, Birdy Mays, that NRA Eagle, Big Bird, Daffy Duck, Donald Duck, Mother Goose, Toucan Sam, Tweety, Larry Bird, Chicken Little, Road Runner, Woody Woodpecker, Foghorn Leghorn, Lady Bird, The Stork, Bluebirds of Happiness, Early Birds, Angry Birds...
    This makes me miss and fondly remember my dad. He was my go-to riddle solver.

  8. Each is the name of the bird! I guessed it before I saw your major hint, but that solidified it for me. You are giving me a serious brain workout with your riddles!

  9. Thank you, Lalove. Bless you for letting me go to bed. Alina, that was great!

  10. Haha. Glad I could help, Sarah. Your list of bird names cracked me up!

  11. I GOT it! But only after I read the hint. And after I read Lalove's post. But I got it all the same. :D

  12. Hooray for Lalove! *throws confetti* So proud.

    Sarah, *I* on the other hand, was already sleeping much better than a baby. ;)

    Bwa ha, Anon, that's the way I usually solve riddles, too. :D

  13. Oh, darn. I actually thought that Each might be the name of a bird, but then I thought I was just being silly and it must be something else.


I never bite the hand that comments
