It hatches like a bird, yet grows as fast as evil, it makes the earth quake, yet it stays still 4ever...what is it?

That's one of my lamest riddles. The most obvious one actually [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img] But oh well...

Many thanks, Gandalf. I shall post a riddle as soon as I think of one (which may or may not take a while) and as soon as I can get to a computer (which may be from several days to several weeks.)

Samwise_Gamgee , thank you for your riddle! I have not cracked it yet...

River?

It hatches from between the rocks as a tiny stream. It grows fast into a river though you cannot point out exactly when it becomes that. It makes the earth quake as a waterfall. The RIVER never moves, only the water.

It comes in, It goes out.
To let it go for good is to die
Hold it too tight and it never returns

Yep. Lame, aint it...

I'm better at solving them then inventing them.

I'd rather just solve those I can without asking any in turn...

Well, in the absence of anyone else...
Here's something short, that I wrote today. Seems pretty obvious to me, but then again, I wrote it [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Armies march at my command,
Yet I speak in no tongue of Man,
I shiver, though not from fear,
Though I carry it to those who hear,
Grond I command, and orcish host,
Hear my voice sounding Deep, and know you are lost.

Have fun!

Is it Evil? I first thought either Melkor or Sauron, but then I thought evil [img]smilies/evil.gif[/img] would be a better answer for a riddle.

Not evil, although that's a good guess.

It in itself is neither good nor evil, it simply is.

No, no and no. Although, as a hint, I was inspired by Gandalf_theGrey's riddle.(to which the answer was "horn") Also, there is one hint in the riddle itself that you might be able to find, although it isn't obvious.

Yes, a hint, Garen. I am guessing that the capitalization of "Deep" may be a clue, but I am having a dumb streak.

Aragorn... is the answer to yours a sword?

Aragorn, my guess at yours is an arrow, or maybe a bow and arrows or something along those lines.

You are quite right to think the capitalization of Deep a clue, though it refers not to Helm's Deep. In fact, it is capitalized merely to draw attention, and is not where I drew that part from in the books. It is a double-entandre (sp?). While in LotR, it is always the forebearer of evil, (except for one place, and then it is imitated and not actual) although in RL, it is merely part of life.

That's all the hint you get for now. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]
Let me know if you need more.

Well, drums are often used to herald a marching army--that's the first two lines. And the "shivering" line; the drumskin vibrates every time it's struck.

I'll be back with my own riddle in a little while.

Apologies, Aragorn_Protector. As Susan guessed my riddle at the same time as I guessed yours, I simply thought I'd let her go ahead, and we could keep it to one at a time. Since, however, the thread is empty at the moment, and with the gracious permission of Miz. Delgado, I'll go ahead and post another one.

Tiptoes, but there's a loud sound,
You may think I'm white, but you'd be wrong.
Thunder charge, lightning speed,
Measure power by me.

What am I?

Sorry, been busy. Family, you know. No reason we can't have more than one going at a time.

I run smoother than any rhyme.
I love to fall but cannot climb.
I can the heaviest burdens bear,
yet tremble at each breath of air.
