I build up castles.
I tear down mountains.
I make some men blind,
I help others to see.
What am I?
With thieves I consort,
With the vilest, in short,
I'm quite at ease in depravity;
Yet all divines use me,
And savants can't lose me,
For I am the center of gravity.
When I am filled
I can point the way,
When I am empty
Nothing moves me,
I have two skins
One without and one within.
Lovely and round,
I shine with pale light,
grown in the darkness,
A lady's delight.
To unravel me
You need a simple key,
No key that was made
By locksmith's hand,
But a key that only I
I drive men mad
For love of me,
Until I am measured
I am not known,
Yet how you miss me
When I have flown.
All about, but cannot be seen,
Can be captured, cannot be held,
No throat, but can be heard.
This darksome burn, horseback brown,
His rollock highroad roaring down,
In coop and in comb the fleece of his foam
Flutes and low to the body falls home.

A river, (Gerard Manley Hopkins)
Maker of worn wood,
Ocean, (John Updike)

I have a leg but I do not move,
A face but no expression,
Be it wind or rain I stay outside.
What am I?
It's in your hand though you can not feel it.
Only you and time can reveal it.
What has curves, but is not living?
A black hearted creature with a sting from behind,
Minus my last letter from my name and you shall find;
People believe in my predicting ways
Yet its luck that guides them right.
What am I?
scorpion ... minus the N is Scorpio, the horoscope sign
Three lives have I.
Gentle enough to soothe the skin,
Light enough to caress the sky,
Hard enough to crack rocks
Thirty white horses,
Standing on a red hill,
First they stomp,
Then they chomp,
Then they stand still.
What am i?
What gets wetter when it dries?
You are in a cold house in the winter. It is dark. You have one match. There is a candle and a wood burning stove. Which do you light first?
Ripped from my mother's womb, Beaten and burned, I become a blood-thirsty slayer. What am I?
Lives in winter, dies in summer, grows with its root upwards. What is it?
