A warrior amongst the flowers, he bears a thrusting sword.
He uses his life to defend his golden hoard.
What is he?
i think thats a bee.


We capture light, and yet we don't.
We reflect rays of sun, and yet we don't.
Without us all the world is gray and dull.
What are we?
i think thats colour.


Until I am mesured,
I am not known.
Yet how you miss me,
When I have flown.
What am I?
i think that may be life.

We've already been through the originally posted list several times. We're doing other riddles now.

Two windows which are way up high
Face North, South, East, and Weat.
Opening them lets in no air,
But light shines in them best.

Melephelwen 06-23-2002 07:26 AM

Eyes? Probably not, just wanted to try [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

"The eyes have it" [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Melephelwen 06-24-2002 02:50 AM

Geez! I was right!?!? [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img]
Well, I can't think of any, and I'm leaving in 10 minutes, so if anyone wants to make a riddle, you're welcome!!! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Luthien_ Tinuviel 06-24-2002 12:00 PM

Well, Pippintook_0 got mine right, and he never posted a riddle, so let's let him post one.

Susan Delgado 06-27-2002 12:36 AM

I don't think PippinTook0 is watching this thread anymore, so I will ask one.

You can see me, though you're blind.
Light shines but dispels no darkness.
Touch me and I live,
But if you're touched I die.

Susan Delgado 06-30-2002 08:38 AM

Come on, people. Did we abandon the N&N riddle threads only to forget this one as well?

Grendel 06-30-2002 11:36 AM

I reckon/

1 fish
2 bee
3 plants (perhaps flowers)
4 time
5 sunrays or sunlight
6 fear
7 river
8 snowflake (possibly)

Grendel 06-30-2002 11:41 AM

My guess at that last riddle's answer is "reason"

Veritas 07-01-2002 11:25 AM

Well Susan, I really want to post an answer, but I've got none. This one is really difficult. But I dont really get the second sentence, it sais something about I or You?

Luthien_ Tinuviel 07-01-2002 04:34 PM

Is it depression?

Susan Delgado 07-01-2002 06:56 PM

I checked to make sure, and I did copy it out of the book correctly. It is neither Reason nor Depression.

A hint: don't take it completely literally

Amanaduial the archer 07-03-2002 01:19 PM

heehee methinks pippin_took0 cud be kinda annoyed here....hes a she! and she doesnt really go on anymore, its her sis who goes on her account more now.
*sob* i never got a go when i got one right *sob*

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."

Susan Delgado 07-04-2002 09:21 PM

Amanaduial the archer 07-05-2002 10:40 AM

Laetetur 07-05-2002 04:44 PM

this one is kinda old so you guys probably know it but what the hey...

What is more powerful than God,
more evil than the devil,
if you eat it, you die,
poor people have it,
and rich people want it?

Susan Delgado 07-05-2002 09:18 PM


What about mine?

Luthien_ Tinuviel 07-07-2002 03:40 PM

Susan, it was your turn anyway, so why don't you post one?

Susan Delgado 07-08-2002 01:16 AM


You can see me, though you're blind.
Light shines but dispels no darkness.
Touch me and I live,
But if you're touched I die.
I've had this one sitting up there for over a week; here it is again.

Luthien_ Tinuviel 07-10-2002 01:05 PM

I s it love or something like that?

Susan Delgado 07-11-2002 11:46 PM

Amanaduial the archer 07-14-2002 01:54 PM

Amanaduial the archer 07-14-2002 02:15 PM

Melephelwen 07-20-2002 03:23 AM

Hullo, Susan?? Anyone out there?
Oh, btw, is it faith? [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Rosa_Baggins 07-20-2002 05:29 AM

I have one.

Cannot be wounded by dagger or knife,
but to can also safe your life,
Can burn, can scolder, can soothe, can kill,
Can be found in forest, wood and hill,
Dies in sun but lives quit near,
Can show with that of just a tear.
What I am?

Kettle of fish 07-20-2002 08:34 AM


Rosa_Baggins 07-21-2002 09:16 AM

Well done, Kettle of Fish!That is right!

Rosa_Baggins 07-21-2002 09:43 AM

got another one people.Not a rhyming one*gasp* oh well :P.

A white dove flew down by the castle. Along came a king and picked it up handless, ate it up toothless, and carried it away wingless.

Amanaduial the archer 07-26-2002 02:51 PM

that sounds rather gruesome! wingless birds...

Susan! Tell us please!

Susan Delgado 07-27-2002 12:20 PM

Hmm. Forgot about this thread. None of the answers I've been given are correct though. Would you like a hint?

Amanaduial the archer 07-28-2002 03:50 PM

so this is what it feels like to go mad...

a hint? yes tell tell.....

Susan Delgado 07-28-2002 03:52 PM

heh heh

Ok, it usually, but not always, is associated with night-time

Amanaduial the archer 07-28-2002 03:54 PM

so this is what it feels like to go mad...

is it darkness?

Susan Delgado 07-28-2002 03:55 PM


Amanaduial the archer 07-29-2002 09:20 AM

the moon? (yes i know the last line doesnt really work)

Susan Delgado 07-30-2002 07:51 AM

Don't take it quite so literally. It's mostly metaphorical.

raci 07-30-2002 10:20 AM

8 = a cloud. (Duh)
Sometimes the blatently obvious is right. A cloud holds rain, a land would die without rain... Do u see where i'm going with this? [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img] [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Amanaduial the archer 07-31-2002 10:12 AM

hang on raci...which one is number 8?

Rosa_Baggins 08-05-2002 07:07 AM

Has anyone guessed my one yet?? [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]
