Riddles 37

Full of T

I begin with T,
Have T in the middle,
And end in T.
What am I?

A Teapot!

Bat Your…

I am used to bat with, yet I never get a hit.
I am near a ball, yet it is never thrown.
What am I?

Your Eyelashes!


I am two-faced but bear only one, I have no legs but travel widely. Men spill much blood over me, kings leave there imprint on me. I have greatest power when given away, yet lust for me keeps me locked away. What am I?

A Coin.

Buy to Write

I am the tool, for inspiring many. Buy me in the store, for not much more than a penny. Don’t overuse me, or my usefulness will go, what am I? Do you know?

An inkpen.

Ruler of Shovels

I am the ruler of shovels,
I have a double.
I am as thin as a knife,
I have a wife.
What am I?

The King of Spades (from a deck of cards).

Many Houses

There was a green house.
Inside the green house there was a white house
Inside the white house there was a red house.
Inside the red house there were lots of babies.
What is it?

A watermelon.

Only Truthteller

I am the only thing that always tells the truth. I show off everything that I see. I come in all shapes and sizes. So tell me what I must be!

I must be a mirror, of course.

Black Child of a White Father

I am the black child of a white father, a wingless bird, flying even to the clouds of heaven. I give birth to tears of mourning in pupils that meet me, even though there is no cause for grief, and at once on my birth I am dissolved into air.Who am I?

I am Smoke.

Shut in a Wooden Case

I am taken from a mine, and shut up in a wooden case, from which I am never released, and yet I am used by almost everybody. What am I?

I am pencil lead.

Up There

I am strongest when you see me as round, but I am often viewed in other forms. I lift and drop the sea with my tremendous strength, and a man with a name like ‘powerful bicep’ was the first to tread on me. What am I?

I am the moon.

Served at a Table

I am served at a table,
In gatherings of two or four.
Served small, white and round.
You’ll love some,
And that’s part of the fun.
What am I?

Ping-pong balls.

Death and Decay

A room with no windows or doors
Walks in the night, grows in a day,
Is found where there is death and decay.


Skin Deep

I am never quite what I appear to be. Straight-forward I seem, but it’s only skin deep, for mystery most often lies beneath my simple speech. Sharpen your wits, open your eyes, look beyond my exteriors, read me backwards, forwards, upside down. Think critically and answer the question. What am I?

I am a Riddle!

Black of Eye

I am black of eye and bright of hair. I fast in to the ground and follow my lord as he races around the world. What am I?

I’m a Sunflower.

Ends Life

It cannot be seen, can not be felt,
Cannot be heard, cannot be smelled.
It lies behind stars and under hills,
And empty holes it fills.
It comes first and follows after,
Ends life, kills laughter.

The Dark.

One Path

I am at the beginning of all things.
I am at the end of eternity.
There is but one path from my beginning to my end.
My whole embodies indifference.
What am I?

I am Apathy!

Cold As Death

Alive without breath,
As cold as death;
Never thirsty, ever drinking,
All in mail never clinking.


A Window

I am a window, I am a lamp, I am clouded, I am shining, and I am coloured; set in white, I fill with water and overflow. I say much, but I have no words. What am I?

I am an eye.

A Path Between Masses

I am a path situated between high natural masses. Remove my first letter & you have a path situated between man-made masses.
What am I?

A Valley. Take away the V and I’m and Alley.

Listen and Live

I always point in the right direction. My instructions are written in black and white. Disobey me and pay the consequences. I will never say more than two words at a time. What am I?

A “One Way” sign!
