Thy RiddleThy Answer
This thing all things devours: bird, beasts, trees, flowers. Knaws Iron, bites steel; Grinds hard stone to meal; Slays king, ruins town; Beats high mountain down
What has roots as nobody sees, Is taller than trees, Up, up it goes, And yet never grows?
No legs lay on one lay, Two legs sat near on three legs, Four legs got some
An eye in a blue face Saw an eye in a green face. 'That eye is like to this eye' Said the first eye 'But in low place, not in high place'
Alive without breath, As cold as death, Never thirsty, ever drinking, All in mail, never clinking
Cannot be seen, cannot be felt, Cannot be heard, cannot be smelt, It lies behind stars, and under hills, And empty holes it fills, It comes first and follows after, Ends life, kill
Thirty white horses on a red hill, First they champ, Then they stamp, Then they stand still
A box without hinges, key or lid, Yet golden treasure inside is hid
Voiceless it cries, Wingless flutters, Toothless bites, Mouthless mutters
