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.

Rosa_Baggins 08-05-2002 07:24 AM

I can see that [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]
The white dove is a snowflake
The king is the sun.

Elfie88 08-05-2002 07:24 AM

hwo the hell does that work?
Elfie, I dont mean to be boring, but one of the rules on the downs is no swearing, even if it is quite light like that. Ull end up getting ureself banned.
Also, cud u use a PM convo for stuff like this instead of repetitively posting; its really *annoying* when with every one it sends a email to anyone whos posted heres inbox.

Rosa_Baggins 08-05-2002 07:45 AM

Aman. She's new an she didn't know.

Manwe 10-21-2002 05:54 AM

Well, I'm back again after quite a slumber, haven't visited the Barrowdowns in ages.

I'm a fire,
greater than all,
I allways climb but never tire,
nor fall,
but allways I come back,
I always fight and struggle,
with the army clad in black,
what am I?

It's a short one but I'm warming up.

Laivine 10-21-2002 09:00 AM

The sun?! Hmm, I'm no good at riddles!

Manwe 10-22-2002 04:02 AM

Yes, it's the sun. Well, that was a quite easy one, I'll try to figure out something harder next.

I am as wise as any man,
and never is my knowledge lost,
but when you destroy me,
my wisdom is the cost,
I can tell you many thing,
but never do I speak to thee,
but still you are the one,
who at firs taught me,
what am I?

hobbitlass 10-22-2002 07:45 AM

I am going to go with...a book.
But then the Ents come to mind also.

Laivine 10-22-2002 09:16 AM

I would go with a book too [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Manwe 10-24-2002 02:54 AM

Yes, it's a book. I'll come back with a new one as soon as I have time.

Manwe 11-15-2002 06:32 AM

Ok, it took some time, but here is one:

I'm your friend in the night,
where I will give you light,
I can be big or small,
but after I'm used I'm not at all,
time against me always race,
and at last it will stop my blaze,
what am I?

TolkienGurl 11-15-2002 06:41 AM

A candle?

Manwe 11-18-2002 05:12 AM

That's correct. I really should try to find out something harderm, I'll be back when I do.

Legolas*is*a*hotty 12-20-2002 02:13 PM

I am alway ther when you don't want me to be.
I always interupt everything you say.
I may last a minute, hour, or even a day.
Some people hold their breath prying I'll go
Some people try to scare me away.
What am I?

Amanaduial the archer 12-20-2002 02:44 PM

I can think of a few ideas of these, but i think theyre probably all wrong.

a fly?

Oops, had a few problems logging on to the forum for a couple of days.

I'm too busy to really think about something right now, so anyone feel free to take my turn. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

hobbitlass 01-03-2003 10:05 AM

At night they come without being fetched
And by day they are lost without being stolen

Lostgaeriel 01-03-2003 05:02 PM

Stars? ***scratches head***

hobbitlass 01-03-2003 05:48 PM

Yep, now you give us one

Lostgaeriel 01-06-2003 12:31 PM

Weight in my belly,
Trees on my back,
Nails in my ribs,
Feet I do lack.
