Kent Davis Folklore: Traditional Appalachian Riddles (11) RE: Folklore: Traditional Appalachian Riddles 23 Jul 11

Round as a biscuit; busy as a bee;
Prettiest little thing that you ever did see.

(unsure where I learned it, but probably in West Virginia in the early 1970s, possibly from SANG BRANCH SETTLERS: FOLKSONGS AND TALES OF A KENTUCKY MOUNTAIN FAMILY by Leonard Roberts, published 1974, who collected a close variation from Jim Couch, of Leslie and Harlin Counties, Kentucky, during the summer of 1952)

(answer to follow in a separate post)
