What Am I?Answer
I am lighter than a feather yet no man can hold me for long.
I'm sometimes full, but I never overflow.
The more there is of me the less you see.
I am a three digit number. My second digit is four times more than my third digit. My first digit is seven less than my second digit.
I have not flesh nor feathers nor scales nor bone. Yet I have fingers and thumbs of my own.
Until I am measured, I am not known. Yet how you miss me, when I have flown.
I always run but never walk, often murmur but never talk, have a bed but never sleep, have a mouth but never eat.
You can see me in water but I never get wet.
From the beginning of eternity, to the end of time and space, to the beginning of every end and the end of every place.
No legs have I to dance, No lungs have I to breathe, No life have I to live or die And yet I do all four.
I am tall when I'm new and short when I'm old I give off my own light but cannot turn it on.
Take off my skin, I won't cry, but you will.
Take one out and scratch my head, I am now black but once was red.
I am full of holes, yet I am full of water.
I can bring a smile to your face, a tear to your eye or even a thought to your mind, but I can't be seen.
The more you take of me, the more you end up leaving behind.
Only one color, but not one size. Stuck at the bottom, yet I easily fly. Present in sun, but not in rain. Doing no harm, and feeling no pain.
