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