Riddle 161

It sat upon a willow tree,
And sang softly unto me.
Easing my pain and sorrow with its song,
I wished to fly, but tarried long.
And in my suffering,
The willow was like a cool clear spring.
What was it that helped me so?
To spend my time in my woe.
Bird

Riddle 162

I awoke with start.
Hearing its voice in the dark.
And shook more so from within,
Than that which came upon the wind.
Then, with a flare and a flash.
I hid my head and awaited the crash.
What is it that shook my body so?
And made me hide way down low?
Thunder & lightning

Riddle 163

Then down again here they come.
Moving up, then down, then up again,
Take notes, and start again.
Combining both sharps and flats.
Does anyone know where they are at?
Hands on a keyboard

Riddle 164

A man not a man saw and did not see a bird not a bird

You can nurse them, but only by holding them against someone else,
You can carry them, but not with your arms,

Riddle 166

Deep as a bowl, round as a cup,
Yet all the world's oceans can't fill it up.

Though desert men once called me God,
To-day men call me mad,
For I wag my tail when I am angry,
And growl when I am glad.

Riddle 168

What answer is blowing in the wind?
Forty-two. (How many roads must a man walk down?)

Riddle 169

I heard of an invading, vanquishing army
sweeping across the land, liquid-quick;
conquering everything, quelling resistance.
With it came darkness, dimming the light.
Humans hid in their houses, while outside
spears pierced, shattering stone walls.
Uncountable soldiers smashed into the ground,
but each elicited life as he died;
when the army had vanished, advancing northward,
the land was green and growing, refreshed.
A rainstorm

Riddle 170

I saw a strange creature:
Long, hard, and straight,
Thrusting into a round, dark opening,
Preparing to discharge its load of lives.
Puffing and squealing noises accompanied it,
Then a final screech as it slowed and stopped.
Say what I mean.
Train, subway

Has quite another aim,
In places deep, he did seek,
To find me for his gain!
