What Am I?Answer
I am tall when I'm new and short when I'm old I give off my own light but cannot turn it on.
I'm sometimes full, but I never overflow.
I have not flesh nor feathers nor scales nor bone. Yet I have fingers and thumbs of my own.
Take one out and scratch my head, I am now black but once was red.
I have keys but no locks. I have space but no room. You can enter but can’t go outside.
You can see me in water but I never get wet.
I always run but never walk, often murmur but never talk, have a bed but never sleep, have a mouth but never eat.
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.
Until I am measured, I am not known. Yet how you miss me, when I have flown.
The more there is of me the less you see.
From the beginning of eternity, to the end of time and space, to the beginning of every end and the end of every place.
Take off my skin, I won't cry, but you will.
The more you take of me, the more you end up leaving behind.
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 am full of holes, yet I am full of water.
I am lighter than a feather yet no man can hold me for long.
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.
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 three.
