Sun on the Daisies Riddle

Type: Songs & Stories

Description:This is one of the riddles Bilbo used during his riddle game with Gollum.

‘This’ll puzzle the nasty little underground creature,’ he thought:

An eye in a blue face
Saw an eye in a green face.
‘That eye is like to this eye’
Said the first eye,
‘But in low place
Not in high place.’
. . . ‘Sss, sss, my preciousss,’ he said. ‘Sun on the daisies it means, it does.’
