41
Chain
You feed it, it lives,
You give it something to drink, it dies.
Fire
42
Chain
A red drum which sounds
Without being touched,
And grows silent,
When it is touched.
A heart
43
Chain
A harvest sown and reaped on the same day
In an unplowed field,
Which increases without growing,
Remains whole though it is eaten
Within and without,
Is useless and yet
The staple of nations.
A war
44
Chain
If you break me
I do not stop working,
If you touch me
I may be snared,
If you lose me
Nothing will matter.
Heart
45
Chain
All about, but cannot be seen,
Can be captured, cannot be held
No throat, but can be heard.
Sound, noise
46
Chain
I go around in circles,
But always straight ahead
Never complain,
No matter where I am led.
A wheel
47
Chain
Lighter than what
I am made of,
More of me is hidden
Than is seen.
Ice, iceberg
48
Chain
If a man carried my burden,
He would break his back.
I am not rich,
But leave silver in my track.
A snail
49
Chain
My life can be measured in hours,
I serve by being devoured.
Thin, I am quick
Fat, I am slow
Wind is my foe.
A candle
50
Chain
Weight in my belly,
Trees on my back,
Nails in my ribs,
Feet I do lack.
Ship, boat

51
Chain
You can see nothing else
When you look in my face
I will look you in the eye
And I will never lie.
A mirror
52
Chain
I am always hungry,
I must always be fed,
The finger I lick
Will soon turn red.
A fire
53
Chain
Three lives have I.
Gentle enough to soothe the skin,
Light enough to caress the sky
Hard enough to crack rocks.
Water
54
Chain
Glittering points
That downward thrust,
Sparkling spears
That never rust.
Icicles, stalactites
55
Chain
Each morning I appear
To lie at your feet,
All day I follow
No matter how fast you run,
Yet I nearly perish
In the midday sun.
A shadow
56
Chain
Keys without locks
Yet I unlock the soul.
A piano, harpsichord
57
Chain
Something wholly unreal, yet seems real to I
Think my friend, tell me where does it lie?
In the mind
58
Chain
So simple,
That I can only point
Yet I guide men
All over the world.
A compass
59
Chain
A beggar's brother went out to sea and drowned.
But the man who drowned had no brother.
What was the relationship between the man who drowned and the beggar?
Answer 1: The beggar was his sister
Answer 2: Both beggars were priests
60
Chain
For our ambrosia we were blessed,
by Jupiter, with a sting of death.
Though our might, to some is jest,
we have quelled the dragon's breath.
Who are we?
Bees
