Lines From Poem


Here's a clue, figure out each metaphor's literal meaning to figure it out. Each line has a metaphor. Review and tell me your analysis before reading the story, and then after.



I'm a riddle in nine syllables, (1)
An elephant, a ponderous house,
A melon strolling on two tendrils.
O red fruit, ivory, fine timbers!
This loaf's big with its yeasty rising.
Money's new-minted in this fat purse.
I'm a means, a stage, a cow in calf.
I've eaten a bag of green apples,
Boarded the train there's no getting off.

I'm a riddle in nine syllables, (1)

"I . . . I can't believe it," Yugi whispered as she stared at the device in front of her. As she shock finally set in she did the only thing she could think of.



Atem sprang from his position on the couch. He had been waiting for Yugi to come back from the bathroom since she had excused herself.

"Yugi!" He rushed on up the stairs and to the bathroom. His panicked mind never realized the he was still in his boxers.

He threw the door open, ready to save Yugi . . . but nothing was wrong. Yugi stood in front of him, staring at him with wide eyes.

His eyes immediately darted around the room to search for any kind of danger that could harm his precious lover.

His eyes settled on the small white device sitting on the bathroom sink. The single purple line the device showed froze his mind.

"Y-Yugi?" he barely managed to ask. He looked back at Yugi to see her nod her head.

"Yami . . . I'm pregnant."

An elephant, a ponderous house, (2)

"Atem," Yugi moaned at the all too familiar feeling of Atem rubbing her swelling stomach.

Already thirty-eight weeks pregnant, she felt absolutely enormous!

Atem sat behind her with his back against the head board. Yugi sat between his legs while he wrapped his arms around her and pet his precious unborn child.

Atem hummed as he closed his eyes and laid his chin atop her shoulder. "I can't wait to see our precious little one."

"Neither can I," Yugi agreed. Giggling, she added, "I can't wait for when I'm not as big as a whale."

"I think you look sexy like this."

"Like a whale?"

"A sexy whale."


A melon strolling on two tendrils. (3)

"You do not," said Atem.

Yugi had only began to show a few weeks ago, and was beginning to worry about how big she was . . . and how big she will soon be.

"Sometimes I hate having such a small frame," said Yugi as she looked at herself in her full size mirror. Atem stood behind her with a soft glare. "It makes it look like I'm bigger than I am."

"That doesn't matter," said Atem firmly. "Anybody who thinks otherwise can kiss my ass."

"Atem!" she said looking at him. "Don't cuss!"

"Fine! Anyone who thinks otherwise can kiss my pasty Egyptian butt!" (~Yu-Gi-Oh! Crpsule Monsters reference!~)


O red fruit, ivory, fine timbers! (4)

"Atem?" asked Yugi.

"Yes. What is it, Yugi?" he asked as he turned from digging around in the refrigerator for the leftover spaghetti from last night so they could eat.

"When you were . . . alive . . . five thousand years ago . . . " the pause was longer before she continued, "did you ever . . . think of having children?"

"Children?" he asked as his eyes widened.

Of course he had thought of having children. Everyone does at some point in their life, but once he grew older, he had thought that he would never actually have children. Because there was not anyone he loved enough at the time.

But now he had found Yugi.

"Why would you ask that?"

"No . . . no reason, Atem."

"I remember that," said Atem. "Now I know why you asked that that day."

Yugi giggled as she looked at her stomach. Only a slight bump could be seen, but it wasn't noticeable when she wore a shirt.

Atem lifted Yugi's shirt a little higher so that he could rub the bump that was his child.

He was kneeled down in front of Yugi as she sat in one of the kitchen chairs.

"I wonder how warm it is in here?" he asked as he placed his cheek on her stomach. "I wonder what it feels like to her?"

"Her?" Yugi asked with a raised eyebrow. "How do you know that it's a girl?"

"I just do." He looked up at Yugi suddenly serious. "You're going to have to take it easy from now on."

"What?" she asked surprised. "I'm only four months along!"

"Exactly," he said as he stood and placed his hands on the sides of her face. "While carrying our child you have to be careful. I don't want anything to happen to you or her."

"Okay, Atem."

This loaf's big with its yeasty rising. (5)

"Dang, Yug'!" said Joey as he saw Yugi for the first time in months. She and Atem stood in the middle of the living room. "Someone's been puttin' on the pounds! Ya need ta start layin' off the jelly rolls, Yug'."


"Joey! Say that again!" yelled Atem. Friends or not, if he were to upset Yugi . . .

"Atem, calm down," Yugi ordered as she stood in front of him. "Joey's just kidding." She turned to Joey. "Right, Joey?"

"Yeah Yug', I'm just kidding," he said as he placed his arm on her shoulder. "So calm down, 'Tem."

"Don't call me that."

"So how's the whole pregnant thing going, Yug'?" he asked pointedly ignoring Atem.

Atem's eye twitched.

"Uh, I don't have morning sickness yet," she said with a frown, "so it's not that bad."

"So ya got any cravin's?"

Joey burst into laughter at the blush that covered Yugi's face. Turning her cheeks a deep red.

"Tell me!" Joey demanded as he finally gained control of himself.

"No. Way."

"Come on!"





"Alright," Yugi sighed. 'He's so stubborn.'

"I . . . I have pica."

"Ya have what now?"

"Pica," answered Atem. "It's when pregnant women have cravings for none food items such as chalk, baking soda, dirt, glue, coffee grounds, paper, cigarette butts, soap, rust, feces . . . "

"Feces?" he yelled looking at Yugi.

"I-I don't have that kind of cravings!"

"Whew," he sighed. "That's a relief. So what do you crave?"

"Never mind," she said hastily. "I'm going to bed. See you later, Joey." With that she pretty much ran to her room.

"So, Atem—"

"Don't you say a word, Atem!" yelled from her room.

Joey pouted, knowing that Atem would not disobey her. Out of no where, he smirked. "She's just upset 'cause she has an bun in the oven."


"Atem, I'm hungry!"

Atem's eyes widened as he blushed.

Joey burst into laughter. "Tell me!"



"I'm coming, Yugi!"

Money's new-minted in this fat purse. (6)

"Did you feel that?" asked Yugi as she moved her hands to her stomach.

She and Atem were laying on their bed, and had been trying to fall asleep. Atem had his arms wrapped around her from behind, his hands on her sixth month sized stomach.

"No," he muttered, confused.

She felt another small kick. And Yugi squealed.


Good thing that Grandpa was at a dig in Egypt at the time, or he probably would have stormed in to see who was dying.

Atem sat up at blinding speed. "What's wrong?"

"Atem I felt it! I felt the baby kick!"

Atem was frozen for several seconds before his face broke out with a huge grin. "Let me feel!"

His hands roamed her stomach, checking different areas for kicks. His smile faded as he felt none. "I don't fell anything, Yugi."

"Of course you didn't," she said confused. Then, she narrowed her eyes. "You did read the pregnancy book I gave you, didn't you?"

"Uh . . . " He reached back to rubbed the back of his neck. "I dabbled."


I'm a means, a stage, a cow in calf. (7)

"You did this to me on purpose! Didn't you?"

"Yugi, you're over reacting."

"Over reacting?"

"Calm down."

"Calm down? How dare you tell me to calm down?"

"Your hormones are just acting up."

"Your just using me aren't you?"

"Calm down!"

I've eaten a bag of green apples, (8)

"I can't believe it," Atem whispered as his lips faintly touched Yugi. He gave her a chaste kiss before continuing. "Only one week away from your due date."

"I know," Yugi sighed as she looked at her enormous stomach. "I can't wait to see these two little ones."

Atem started chuckling. "I still can't believe how you reacted when we found out we were having twins."

A blush coated Yugi's cheeks. "I . . . have no comment."

Atem bust out laughing.

Boarded the train there's no getting off.(9)

"Deep breaths. Deep breaths, sweetie. You're almost done"

Yugi screamed as she crushed Atem's wrist in her grip.

"There we go! One more push, sweetie!"

"Almost done, Yugi," Atem whispered into her ear.

Yugi screamed one last time, and crying could be heard throughout the room.

A smile graced both of new parents' faces.

"I love you, Yugi," Atem said as he kissed Yugi deeply.

"I love you too, Atem. I don't regret anything."

I know this might not very Yugi-like in this story, but Puzzleshipping and Blindshipping are the main stories I write. Sorry. I didn't like writing Yugi like this, but I wanted to teach this poem to people because it is an excellent poem. Not one of those really cheesy kinds. Let me know how it is.

In case you are confused, the timeline of this story does not go in chronological order. I wrote to go along with the poem.

I turned this into a slight comedy. I tried to add in at least a little humor.

The reason I put this story as complete even though I do plan on doing more chapters, is because each chapter is complete. Each chapter could be its own story put I'm just putting them together as one.

If anybody can guess what Yugi is craving, I'll be very surprised.
