Who Am I?

I am a clown,
But I know no jokes.
In orange and white,
I wear a scaled cloak.

I hide from
Various enemies
By living in
Wavy anemones.

Served on a dish,
I'm not delish,
I am a ______ ______!

Well, seeing that I'm the first commenter, I won't spoil the answer for others, but how fun Bridget! I see a colorful riddle book for children in your future.

Linda B said...

Me, too, like Michelle! This would be a great book for younger kids. I know my four year old granddaughter would love to finish the riddles!

Tara @ A Teaching Life said...

I'm with the others, Bridget, there's a book idea here!

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Michelle! I love riddle poems...I have a few from over the years. Maybe a riddle book is in my future. =)

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Linda! My daughter loves riddles, too. She actually inspired me to write this one after our recent trip to an aquarium. =)

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Tara! I'll keep working on riddle poems - their as fun to write as to solve. =)

Becky Shillington said...

This is wonderful, Bridget! I agree--definitely a great book idea here. I love riddle poems!

Joy said...

Well done.

Carol said...

I agree with everyone else! Definitely a poetry/riddle book waiting to be published!

Liz Steinglass said...

I got it! Yes, maybe a riddle book about sea creatures?

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Becky! Riddle poems are my favorite, too! =)

Bridget Magee said...

*they are* (instead of their)

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Joy!

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Carol! It's unanimous so far! =)

Bridget Magee said...

Good job, Liz! A sea creature riddle book - how fun that would be! =)

Margaret Simon said...

Riddle poems are such fun. And the rhyming is wonderful. I envision the answer on the flip of the page tagging another riddle poem.

Keri said...

Lively and engaging -- and you have an ocean of other characters to choose from for the book we all trust you are going to write!

Tabatha said...

I vote for a book about all kinds of creatures, land, sea, and air!

Mary Lee said...

Noooo!! Don't serve Nemo on a dish!! (kidding)

You did such a great job feeding us clues from the general to the specific. Fun, fun, fun!

Bridget Magee said...

Thank you, Margaret! I like the idea of tagging another riddle poem so each progresses into the other...mmm, my juices are flowing. =)

Bridget Magee said...

Thank you, Keri! So true, with the ocean it would take several books to even scratch the surface of all the possible creatures to write about. So many good ideas! =)

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks for your vote of confidence, Tabatha! Riddle poems work well for all creatures and everything else. =)

Bridget Magee said...

LOL, Mary Lee! My daughter had the same thought! Nemo is safe...=)

Author Amok said...

Gotta love a poem that rhymes enemies with anemones, but I hope your little Nemo got away!

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Laura! Nemo is safe, and not laughing about the dish, delish jibe. =)
