It's been a while since I've posted a riddle of any kind, and I figure I'll post an easy one. As always, good luck to all of you and I hope you enjoy it! Oh, and happy holidays!

Jasmin, or juniper, the suffix is one.

Obscured and unseen, until we are done.

Next is the prefix, for summer's flowers.

Exactly; eight chunks, of ninety-three hours.

Summer the best time, in fact, just July; together made history, a season in time.


The correct answer will:

  • Explain the acrostic.
  • Explain each line but the second.
  • Correctly answer the Riley.

    $\begingroup$ For the "summer's flowers" line, I suspect that this has something to do with another famous rhyming line! $\endgroup$ – feelinferrety Nov 14 '18 at 19:47
