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.

Quote:
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.

Quote:
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.

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

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.

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

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?

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?

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