My next alone has soul (Posted on 2007-03-06) Difficulty: 4 of 5
My first, tho' water, cures no thirst,
My next alone has soul,
And when he lives upon my first,
He is then called my whole.

Solution Puzzle Solution With Explanation Comment 3 of 3 |

Since no explanation is provided in the proposer's official solution, the raison d'etre culminating in the said solution are appended hereunder as follows:

It would be observerd, that in conformity with the first line, we would have to look for water (or a source of water). The first thing that comes to one's mind is Seawater which is found in the Seas.  

The second through fourth lines imply a person (or man) with a specific vocation ( which is symbolised by his soul)

Consequently, the required answer to the puzzle must be Sea-man.
