Puzzle me naught

homeless-gnomes

CCC #69

 

A numerical word puzzle- of sorts. Just insert the correct numerical word and you’ve got a nursery rhyme. But can you make sense of all of them? That’s where the puzzle part comes in…

2 trolls went a gnoming
4 new garden statuaries
1 laid a trap with mushrooms
1 a snare of plump ripe berries

2 gnomes went a trolling
4 what? neither 1 would say
8 berries, shrooms and- fishing nets?
9! from those- they 0’ve stayed away..

Forgive me if I fancy myself clever in this. I’m old and easily entertained…

 

This is my response to the photo prompt supplied by Crimson’s Creative Challenge this week.

  1. I’m totally baffled, Violet. I may know parts of most nursery rhymes, but not completely… and I’m overthinking as well. A good puzzle I have to say. You have me perplexed! πŸ€”πŸ˜

  2. As promised, here is the plain text version:
    Two trolls went a gnoming
    For new garden statuaries
    One laid a trap with mushrooms
    One a snare of plump ripe berries

    Two gnomes went a trolling
    For what? neither one would say
    Ate berries, shrooms and- fishing nets?
    Nein! from those- they ought’ve stayed away..
    Crispina was essentially correct as Nein is German for No..
    This was fun. Thanks to all who played along.
