Riddles 43 Posted on July 5, 2007July 5, 2007 by admin Shiny Coat of Red I’m tempting, so it’s said, I have a shiny coat of red, And my flesh is white beneath. I smell so sweet, Taste good to eat, And help to guard your teeth. What am I? I am an apple! Though Almost Blind Without a bridle, or a saddle, Across a thing I ride a-straddle. And those I ride, by help of me, Though almost blind, are made to see. What am I? Glasses. My Web I move silently, without wings, Between silvery, silken strings, And there stretched in the grass You’ll see my web as you pass. What am I? I am a spider. The More I Stand… Two bodies have I Though both joined in one. The more still I stand The quicker I run. What am I? I am an hourglass. Look in my Face Look in my face, I am somebody; Look in my back, I am nobody. What am I? I am a mirror. Four Legs and a Back What is it that has four legs And one back, Yet can’t walk? It is a chair. Cross the Water To cross the water I’m the way, For water I’m above: I touch it not and, truth to say, I neither swim nor move. What am I? I am a bridge, to help you cross. All Poured Out What is the thing which, Once poured out, Cannot be gathered again? Rain, or rainfall. Deep as a Cup Round as an apple, Deep as a cup, All the King’s horses Can’t pull it up. What is it? It is a well. Among Children Most of All A mile from end to end, Yet as close to you as a friend. A precious commodity, freely given. Seen on the dead and on the living. Found on the rich, poor, short and tall, But shared among children most of all. A simple smile. No Pavement I have streets but no pavement. I have cities but no buildings. I have forests yet no trees. I have rivers yet no water. What am I? A map! Cannot Be Lifted Nothing on the outside Nothing on the inside Light as a feather Yet ten men cannot lift it.What is it? A bubble. Poisonous? Part carbon, part water, I am poison to the fishes. Many have falsely claimed my name, for I am the pause that refreshes. What am I? Soda Pop! Sky Mocker! Many-manned scud-thumper, Maker of worn wood, Shrub-ruster, Sky-mocker, Rave! Portly pusher, Wind-slave.What am I? The ocean! Secret Follower Each morning I appear To lie at your feet, All day I will follow No matter how fast you run, Yet I nearly perish In the midday sun.What am I? I am your shadow. Helping Move Earth I have no eyes, no legs or ears, and I help move the earth.What am I? A worm. Illusion I am a tale in childrens? minds. I keep their secrets and share them inside. I blur their thoughts into fantasies kept Like a canvas of art or a submarine depth. Though an illusion, it occurs every night; I give them a fantasy, I give them a fright. Nor good or bad, but always nigh? It?s interesting to tell.What am I? I am a dream. Low I.Q.? I’m a seed that’s underground. Many like to spread me around. But my family it’s said is quite insane. And if you’ve a low I.Q. you’ve this kind of brain. Eat me raw and I’ll make you sick. Eat too much and your tongue will stick.What am I? A peanut. Book of Magic? My author’s uncertain yet my title’s the same, I contain random text yet order’s my aim. Read me one day and see my pages are totally bare. Try again another day and the words will be there. I’m not a book of magic although it may sound, I can predict the future, and inside, your life can be found. Move my eye, I become involved in lactic extraction. But that’s just a clue , a minor distraction.What am I? A diary. Count Dracula? As I went over London Bridge I met my sister Jenny. I broke her neck and drank her blood And left her standing empty. What am I? Gin.
