Mr. Punch's Puzzles: The Riddle of the Week








Once, again, Mr. Punch, with my help, is offering up a true Victorian riddle.  The first person to answer correctly--by posting in the comments--will receive public congratulations.  

So, here's this week's riddle.  We ask that you don't Google the answer.  Mr. Punch would not find that sporting at all.  Give it a shot and see what you can come up with.  Here we go... No cheating...


 I had a little sister, They called her Pretty Peep; She wades in the waters, Deep, deep, deep! She climbs up the mountains, High, high, high; My poor little sister, She has but one eye.

And...the answer is, A STAR. Thanks for your patience today. Next week will be more normal. Your answers were great! Especially Darcy! Come back next Friday for another of Mr. Punch's Puzzles!

 Have fun!

This is a little known fact . Popeye had a little sister they called pretty Peep. She was actually not his real sister, but part of his extended family . Her mother was Alice the Goon and her father was Cyclops. They are not related to Bo Peep or any of her illustrious family.
I don't know if this answers the riddle but I just thought it was interesting.
