THIS WEEK’S RIDDLE:

It sifts from leaden sieves,
It powders all the wood,
It fills with alabaster wool
The wrinkles of the road.

It makes an even face
Of mountain and of plain,
Unbroken forehead from the east
Unto the east again.

It reaches to the fence,
It wraps it, rail by rail,
Till it is lost in fleeces;
It flings a crystal veil.
What is it?

Answer

Snow

The strongest, the swiftest, cannot evade me.
I’ll seize you and crush you and wrench you apart,
Though no one may gaze on my singular heart.
What am I?

Black hole

January 17th, 2024:

Dipping, glinting, gliding by,
Rainbow-fretted, wrought of breath.
I live only while I fly –
Earth’s rough kiss my sudden death.
What am I?

Bubble

January 24th, 2024:

A king, a queen, and their royal heirs
Two alike, both slim and fair.
The king was firm, the queen was lax
Equally sought by those with tax.
Lain in a room, they’re still as stone
But should you enter, you’d stand alone.
What are they?

Answer

Mattresses

Congrats to @TheBatgirlofNML for solving this week’s riddle!

January 31st, 2024:

This tiny, bespectacled thief
Has much ground to grief
Many a mighty poem,

No wiser for
The learned lore
He nibbles, tome by tome—

But though he’ll munch
My words for lunch,
He never eats his own.
What is he?

Answer

A bookworm

February 7th, 2024:

We cannot rise too high for this;
We cannot fall too low.
Or praised as gods, or in the dust,
It follows where we go.

Its sacred solace all accept
Nor ponder on the cause;
It is of things that ask no rule,
That stand above the laws.

Of things upon no judgment built;
No weighing of the mind—
The hunger of the human heart
To treasure still its kind.
What is it?

Answer

Friendship

No one solved this week’s riddle. Try again next week!

February 14th, 2024:

Of no use to one, yet absolute bliss to two.
The small boy gets it for nothing.
The young man has to lie for it.
The old man has to buy it.
The baby’s right, the lover’s privilege, the hypocrite’s mask.
To the young girl, faith; To the married woman, hope; To the old maid, charity.
What am I?

Answer

A kiss

Is Harleys_Pudding back?

looks around in the hopes he is

Been missin’ that guy…

:thinking:

I’m going to have to ruminate on that one.

Is the answer DC-based, or a random thing?

Riddler! Boy I do miss you, I promise you, no more googling for the answer!

I’m going to guess A Wind. It sound like a wind now that I’ve read it carefully and not in a hurry.
