Just The Four Of Us

Riddles are little poems or phrases that pose a question that needs answering. Riddles frequently rhyme, but this is not a requirement.

Four of us are in your field
But our differences keep us at yield

First, a one that is no fool
Though he resembles a gardener's tool

Next, one difficult to split in two
And a girl once had one as big as her shoe

Then, to the mind, one's a lovely bonder
And truancy makes it grow fonder

Last, a stem connecting dots of three
Knowing all this, what are we?





What Next?

Good one,
Never heard the nursery ryhme about diamonds, so that threw me, but got spades and hearts so guessed the other two.

The best hint was the previous comment.

Funny, at first I thought it was the four of my personalities, but then I saw the second clue...

Isn't ONYX the hardest stone to break?
Well, diamonds are pretty hard to break. GOOD JOB!!!

May 02, 2005

Err, was it three? If there is me, and David, and Jordan, and Ryan...... Should I say 3 personalities or should I say 4 personalities?

Clumsy poem, the scansion limps,
Clues are fit for dopes and simps.
While "field " and "yield" may
make a rhyme,
They make no sense at any time.
The diamond may be hard, it's
true,
But it splits quite easily - that's
how they do.
The spade I'll give you - that
makes sense,
The heart - I'm kind of on the
fence.
"Truancy " for "absent" sort of
works,
But "bonder" ? Do you take us all
for jerks?
The club, or "clover"- there you
blow it.
"Dots" are too tiny for leaves -
and you know it!
Take one more step before you
ask for credit -
Go back to your riddle and self-
edit!!

Note:the diamond, while it is the hardest substance and resists wear and scratching, cleaves (or splits) quite readily - indeed, that is the first step in the diamond-cutting process- cleaving the crystal.

While you may think this riddle
Is for the simple in the mind
Don't take me a fool
I know the mix-ups you find

While "field" and "yield"
May not seem of relation
"Field" is the game platform
While "yield" is simply the symbol differentiation

If a Diamond being cleaved is
The beginning of the procession
Then information in my head
Was in incorrect recession

Bonder is word meaning
A device that brings together
And wouldn't you agree that
Heart and Mind should be together?

And as for the "dots"
I see what you mean, but
When looking upon a clover field
Do you not see "dots" of green?

I hope that this explanation
Clarifies this disorientation
Please don't take me a fool
I just try to make good presentation

Good one! Clueless at first then I got it from the "truancy makes it grow fonder" line.

And wow on the poems in the comments. Good stuff!

I didn't get this one at all untill I looked at the answer. I didn't even think about a deck of cards.

Was I the only one who got this right away? It could just be I play poker every other night !!! Too bad I lose 1/3 of the time . Still a good percentage. Of course for a sugeon that is a very bad percentage. "21 patients walked in, only 7 are alive." Am I rambling, well I have a tendancy to do that. You see, in my childhood........

woah i feel like i have to write a rhyming comment...but im not going to.
brilliant teaser, i got it straight away, because im quite the card player! but the rhyme was nice!!

Wow! The comments were as entertaining as the riddle!!!! I liked both very much.

Jun 03, 2005

I guessed it on the fourth line with the garden tool. The rest fell into place. I liked it and I also learned from the comments to think twice if I ever decide to submit a mental gymnastic in poetry form. The comments are so good my poem would be lost in the shuffle..

Great work to unklemyke and the rest of the rhyming commentors! I am quite impressed! I still didn't get the riddle, until I read the answer of course! then it all made sense!

WOW! A battle of wits over a superb teaser. I must have had a brain freeze though - I should have got this one. Most excellent!

hey spookyboy, you got me there
cute, but pretty easy, to compare

great rhyming work & clever too
i'd like to see some more from you

if you ask me, it covered the field
the lawyer says the case is sealed

your pen's mightier then the club
and they're wrong when they snub

in criticizing you i cannot take part
to do so would betray my heart

a diamonds not the only thing
'as hard as rock'
your prose is one thing that i could never 'knock'

according to me you've got it made
whether its with hearts, clubs, diamonds, or the spade!

stumped me the first four lines made me think it was in a garden... now i know it was just wordplay
great teaser!

The only one I got was Heart.......I can't believe I missed spade. That would've made it alot easier.

I can't believe I missed this.

I play Solitaire almost every night,
With my computer,
I often fight.
I know the rules of Rummy,
And Poker, too.
How'd I miss this?
I haven't a clue.

Great riddle.

I could not get it, and that makes me sad! But rhyming is easier, and that makes me glad!

Nov 13, 2006

I didn't get the teaser, but I thought it was well-written,as were most of the comments. But Schmedley, yours was most annoying. Please don't do that anymore. It's not funny and it's not clever--just annoying. Thanks.

Reasonably easy, yet very exceptionally worded teaser. I can enjoy these teasers! They make you think about your descriptive wording and not just your riddle! WTG!

Hey Jake, how can we permanently 'blackball' some of these rude spoilers on this site? We come here for the teasers and a little fun not all these rude comments and childish behavior.

Amen Zena. Who indeed?

This teaser was fine. It was well done.
nu_rob_roy*sx*

Amen Zaya. Who indeed? I'm sorry about that.

I got this and didn't use the hint. It was areally good teaser (riddle). Hope to see more of these in the guture. Great job.

Hey Jake, how can we permanently 'blackball' some of these rude spoilers on this site?

LIKE THE ONES WHO SEND RUDE PRIVATE MESSAGES, BUT REFUSE TO ACCEPT (BLOCK) THE REPLY FROM THE PERSON TO WHOM THEY BERATED.

CHILDISH???

very clever, i didnt get it, but when i saw the answer i got it
great one!

Nov 13, 2006

Itz so funny how I didn't get this. I play with cards all of the time. In fact I just got finished.
wandering_goat*
Nov 13, 2006

That was fun! Similarly to the hint now that I look at it, I got it by figuring out heart first, then spade, then the rest. Took me a while though! For a while I though the path to take would be looking at letter (like those in field .)
natureluverca*
Nov 18, 2006

I did NOT get this. That is weird. I play with cards all the time too.

| Enjoyed this a lot.
| The rhyme, the topic, the hint.
| Comments iced the cake.

(The only poetry I do is Haiku.)
(I got this riddle -yay!- without the hint, but I thought the hint was a nice touch.)

craniacAus*
Nov 13, 2009

Are we running out of good new teasers? This one today is the third one running that shows I already rated it in the past, though I don't remember any of them. I guess I shouldn't complain, though. If I can't remember one, it's as good as new to me now.
mikidollAus*
Nov 13, 2009

Easy! "four in the field" and "gardener's tool" gave it away. I think I liked the poems in the comments better than the teaser itself!
gargphtca*

Wow I feel dumb after this- and I was looking through a deck of cards

I thought cards at first and then changed my mind, but the poem was pretty bad., However, it was fun to see how it brought out a lot of would be poets. I really got a kick out of that and the whole thing has made me smile so that is good. Loved all the comments.
cutebugAus*
Nov 13, 2012

What happened to doehead and shannmo? They were friendly foes. By the way,the teaser was quite easy.
