CeltArctic Origins: riddle song (I Gave My Love a Cherry) (60* d) RE: riddle song 24 Aug 99


What is the difference, in essence really, between these ancient riddle songs (which were, for the most part, wonderful entertainment)and modern TV game shows involving questions and answers?

How can there be a book that no man can read? How can there be a blanket without any thread?

ANSWER: When the book's in the press, no man can it read. When the blanket's in the fleece, it has no thread.
