An eye in a blue face
Saw an eye in a green face.
"That eye is like this eye"
Said the first eye,
"But in a low place,
Not in a high place."

I am stumped...

Well, I'm probably no where near but:

The sky is high and also blue,
The earth is green and below, too
Should the sky have an eye in it's blue face,
Would the earth then not seem a lower place?

Michael Anderson


And so, being young and dipt in folly
I fell in love with melancholy,
But dreams - of those who dream as I,
Aspiringly, are damned, and die:

...um....
The eye in the sky = the eye in the blue face
Jealousy = the green eyed monster
I am what I am = that eye is like this eye
Look down, not up = the low place not the high one???

I dunno - Eye'm stumped

I explained this to him in secret, it was something he had forgotten. Just found the poem along with some neat stuff, without the answers! Now, we just want to see someone really figure this out... I mean, everyone take their guesses, and then we'll ... hey, I'm not supposed to take over, sorry al'Thor! hahaha! Al'Thor will explain it when all of you have tried figuring out this riddle poem.

Please, please at least try! Guess, puzzle it out, whatever. Just say something! Toerag, take a crack! *hands the hammer to Toerag!*

What about a person looking down into a pond....the face reflecting the green of the pond, the reflection in the pond reflecting the blue of the sky....hey, it makes sense to me
laughs, I haven't a clue, but I had to guess something

Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for awhile and leave footprints in our heart and we are never ever the same.

Thank you all for leaving footprints!!

'k , I don't want to drag this out into stupidity. . .

I must say, though, I thought you would recognize the work of the best author ever.

J.R.R. Tolkein . . . The Lord of the Rings.
Bilbo is riddling with Gollum. The answer is:

"'Ss, ss, ss,' said Gollum. He had been underground a long long time, and was forgetting this sort of thing. But just as Bilbo was beginning to hope that the wretch would not be able to answer, Gollum brought up memories of ages and ages and ages before, when he lived with his grandmother in a hole in a bank by a river, 'Sss, sss, my preciouss,' he said. 'Sun on the daisies it means, it does.'"

I will see what else I can come up with.

Rand,
Symbolicly Blue stands for the unknown
Green stands for exceptance.
So I would say from the unknown
Comes the known.

This is the wrong answer.....but it's also correct...........

The heavens are blue,
On a clear day,
God's miraculous creations
As he looks down our way.

To look up green with envy,
Of his masterful works,
Would be envious to any,
That takes time to observe.
