Riddle 261

Creatures of power, creatures of grace,

under their emerald embrace. . .
Either in their life, or in their death.

Stronger than steel,
And older than time;

in roots buried deep
Where the sands and frosts of ages
can never hope to touch or reach.

Inside me the adventurous find
Quests and treasures of every kind.
Trolls, goblins, orcs, and more, await
Within my closed walls for

To secrets untold,
And your mind will unlock the door.
A book

Riddle 269

My children dressed in black or white
Darkness or light may bring me calling
I am oblivion, a empty void, to some
And a haven for others.

In peace and war I conquer
Even the tyrants fear me
Yet the tortured may bless my name

Unmapped am I
Uncharted are my waters
I visit in dreams and reality.

I never make an appointment
But I'm always on time
Laugh in my face
and I will laugh back.

Riddle 270

I never was, am always to be,
No one ever saw me, nor ever will
And yet I am the confidence of all
To live and breathe on this terrestrial ball

Runs over fields and woods all day
Under the bed at night sits not alone,
With long tongue hanging out,
A-waiting for a bone

The beginning of eternity
The end of time and space
The beginning of every end,
And the end of every place
