Have fun with this one! I hope it's a pleasant rest stop for your mind :)

Listen for this word!
For it begins with a high
And ends right on cue?


1 Answer 1


I assume the answer is:



The word has a "high" sound at the start, and a "cue" at the end.

The riddle itself is presented in Haiku form (a total of 17 syllables with phrases of 5, 7, 5 syllables for each line).

    $\begingroup$ Do people really pronounce the second syllable as "kyoo"? I have only ever heard (and said) "koo". $\endgroup$
