O March that blusters and March that blows,
What color under your footsteps glows!
Beauty you summon from winter snows,
And you are the pathway that leads to the rose.
From house to house I go,
A messenger small and slight; And whether it rains or snows, I sleep
outside in the night. What am I?
1. She sells sea shells by the seashore. 2. Betty blue blows
big black bubbles. 3. Cross crossings cautiously.
1. A household pet.
2. The top card.
3. A hot beverage.
Now you try one:
1. A hot color; 2. A hearing organ; 3. Arid.
1. To sum; 2. A deer; 3. A cozy place.
Change one given word to another given word by altering one letter at
a time, each alteration making a new word, the number of letters being
always the same, and the letters always in the same order. Example:
Change lamp to fire in 4 moves. LAMP: LAME, FAME, FARE, FIRE. Now you
change COAT to SHOE in 4 words.
Example: I am a sound. Change my head and I become
a hard substance, solitary, the fruit of a pine, and to sharpen. TONE:
BONE, ALONE, CONE, AND HONE. Now you try one: I am part of a horse.
Change my head and I become a piece of glass, a shady road, a staff,
sensible, to decrease gradually, a feminine name, and an inhabitant
of a Scandanavian country.
