Two Word Puzzles These puzzles are not as challenging as the logical and mathematical ones, but are very clever. I have not been able to track their original sources. Puzzle 1 A ___ sat in his ___ grey, Watching the ___ of moonlight play On a cask in the clearing ahead. And on it, these words he read: "Thou ___ the weak. Thou ___ the strong. To thee, the ___ of the fray Doth belong." And the ___ of leaves died away. The seven missing words in this poem are all anagrams of one another.
Puzzle 2 " ___ don't like ___ !" said the man in the black ___ ; "the ___ may be impressive, but when you ___ a person, you ___ a ___ degree of control. There will be a ___ against ___ when the crucial ___ of this is realized." Each of the ten missing words in this piece are anagrams of the one before with one additional letter. (The first word is one letter.)
