made me think and inspired this .. "Though I never turn my chin, from far away I seem to spin,
Sometimes fat and sometimes thin, I must be someone's next of kin .. moon back to you!

When you try to make a rhyme
How I wish you'd take the time
To work it over 'til it trips
And gently falls from smiling lips.
When the rhymes all rhyme and the meters match,
You've got a teaser that's a catch!
With this one just change "pulling"
to "pull,"
And you've got a rhyme that's
wonder - full!!!

At first I thought of a current (always pulling) but after reading it again, 'sometimes full' gave it away.

Great teaser!!

I think this is a cute teaser. It was tricky though. Nice Rhymes

I sit here thinking
While the adds are blinking
I read the teaser one more time
It takes me until noon
But I realize it is the moon

That was one great teaser! It was kinda tricky and had me thinking really hard. I liked it! *I give 2 thumbs up!*
jennsingergirlAus*
Jun 06, 2008

Yay! I got it! =) This one took me a while, but it finally came to me. It was the blue clue that helped me, because I was thinking of things that could be painted or dyed, and then I thought of the blue sky, and then voila! There it was! =) Great job!
avonmaAus*
Jun 06, 2008

That was a great teaser! I didn't spend enough time to figure it out - as usual - but you did a fantastic job!

Very nice teaser, I really liked it. Would like to see some more. Maybe I'll get the next one.

"moon" just came to my head like magic = ]. It was a good riddle though
FatHeadAus*
Jun 06, 2008

That was too hard for me. Nice poem, though.
ptery**
Jun 06, 2008

Though I appreciate the poem, UncleM. I humbly disagree and like the "pushing/pulling" just the way it is. Well done!

That was fun! I figured it out easily though; it doesn't happen much
Mitty44*us*
Jun 06, 2011

It really made sense. Althouh the "Never sad, Sometimes Blue" part confused me a little.
doeheadAus*
Jun 06, 2011

3 years later, and I was moonstruck again. Still didn't know the answer.
gaylewolfAus*

Ditto Doehead!

Cute teaser!

Good teaser - I had to actually look at the answer. Loved it - especially the Blue Moon part - you don't hear that phrase much anymore "once in a blue moon". In explanation, see: http://www.infoplease.com/spot/bluemoon1.html
