    dotsA Riddledots

    My first is in laughter, and also in smile
    My second’s in ocean, but not on the Nile
    My third and my fourth are in shovel and stave
    My fifth is in whiskers, but not in a shave
    My next is in illness and also in sick
    The next two’s in suckle and also in lick
    My ninth is in conquer and so is my tenth
    My next is in inches, and also in length
    My twelfth is in question, of that there’s no doubt
    My next is in chubby and also in stout
    My next is in feeling and also in feel
    The next one’s in orange, but never in peel
    The last one but three, it is twice in away
    The last two of my letters, are in slaughter and slay
    My whole is a phrase, with a meaning so true
    To be spoken by me, and be spoken by you

      This is a clever riddle.

      I love the poem, and the whimsical and novel mood it creates! I wasn't able to solve the riddle, though. Very clever and entertaining this; I shall continue to try and solve.
