Here is my few because no one else has posted any new:

1. In a marble hall, white as milk,

Lined with skin as soft as silk,

Within a fountain crystal clear,

A golden apple, doth appear,

No doors there are to this stronghold,

Yet thieves break in to steal the gold...

2. There is a thing, which nothing is,

Yet it has a name.

It's sometimes tall

And sometimes short

It tumbles when we fall

It joins our sport,

And plays at every game...

3. I run smoother than any rhyme,

I love to fall but cannot climb.

I tremble at each breath of air,

And yet can heaviest burdens bear...

4. I come out of the earth,

I am sold in the market.

He who buys me cuts off my tail,

Takes off my suit of silk,

And weeps beside me when I am dead...

5. More beautiful than the face of your God,

Yet more wicked than a Demon's forked tongue?

Dead men eat it all the time,

Live men who eat it die slow...

6. 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...

7.For ten minutes you could not hold it,

yet it's lighter than a feather.

In the cold it is fog.

In the heat, feels like smog.

But you need it in all weather...

8.Two brothers we are,

great burden we bear

by which we a bitterly pressed.

In truth we may say

we are full all the day

but empty we go to our rest...

9.Two brothers we are,

great burden we bear

but one does more than the other,

One brother holds it but always gives it away,

What do we measure,

through night and day...

10.I tie and hold, capture and bind,

yet both knights and knaves doth crave me.

I faithfully enslave all within my grasp,

whether or not they seek me.

Yet those who have never felt my unmerciful hand,

are pitied by their fellow Man...

11.I daily am in the new world and old,

At times do all the world explore,

Since time began I've held my reign,

And shall till time is never more.

I never in my life have strolled

In garden, field, or park,

Yet all of these are sad and cold

If I am not there...

Get those riddles all correct and I commend you! (Unless you cheat and go look for the answers, in which you'll still be commended but we both know that the guilt will lie deep in your gut, festering, and festering, until one day it will erupt and cause you to die in a fiery explosion!!!!)

Think of words ending in -GRY. Angry and hungry are two of them. There are only three words in the English language. What is the third word? The word is something that everyone uses every day. If you have listened carefully, I have already told you what it is.
