Little riddles

Postby Holmes » February 8th, 2009, 10:50 am

Here I put little riddles for everyone to try, they may be easy, but fun! I copied them from a book(not telling wich book  ;))In some of them you'll have to think something, in others, a situation.

Here they go ...


1) The roots aren't seen,
and it's taller than a tree.
Up, up, up it goes,
Nevertheless, it doesn't grow.


2) Thirty white horses
in a coloured little hill.
First they bite,
then they grind,
and then they rest.


3) It sings without voice,
it flies without wings,
without teeth it bites,
without mouth it speaks.


4) One eye in the blue face
saw an eye in the green face.
"That eye is like this eye"
said the first eye,
"but in lower places,
and not in the higher places".


5) You cannot see it nor feel it,
and it occupies every hole;
you cannot smell it nor hear it,
it's beyond the stars,
and at the foot of the hills,
he arrives first, and stays;
it kills the laugh and it finishes lives.


6) Box without key,
cover or hinges,
but inside a golden
treasure it keeps.


7) Everyone lives without breath;
and cold like the dead,
never with thirst, always drinking,
everyone in suit, always in silence.


8 ) Without legs leans to one leg;
two legs sits close to three legs,
and four legs got something.


9) It consumes everything:
birds, beasts, plants and flowers;
it destroys the iron, it bites the steel,
and pulverizes the rock;
it murders kings, ruins cities
and takes down the high mountains.


Enjoy!  :D
