Riddle of the Week from Jun 19 2022
This artist draws a bow
But not across his strings
Instead his string he plucks
And death's the note he brings.
Riddle of the Week from Jun 12 2022
A bone not of contention.
A pony in your do.
A spy will want to lose it.
A wind that pushes you.
Riddle of the Week from Jun 05 2022
This house holds rooms, one score and six,
That shelter a vast mob.
It lets lions lie down with the lambs,
Yet makes both shun the slob.
None now will nestle with nicks and nates,
While reams room near the rear.
Though you and I have separate rooms
Both our bottles brim with beer.
The king and queen can never mate
(Though hands and hearts hobnob)
Because their rooms are separate
If this jail does its job.
What house is this that rules thus
Forcing faith to fend with fear?
The answer to this riddle lies
With dead and dying here.

Riddle of the Week from May 29 2022
His neighbors four stand taller,
As anyone can see.
Always he’ll oppose them
Yet together hold a key.
But if he’s all you got,
You’re as clumsy as can be
Riddle of the Week from May 22 2022
A gruesome traveler, mud bemired,
Approaches here all worn and tired.
Upon the spot a trim bed makes,
And of rest she then partakes.
Her silken sheets she wraps so tight,
They quite conceal her from our sight.
Now oft before I've heard it said,
That beauty marred is healed in bed.
But to me such talk was cheap,
I've not believed in beauty sleep.
Till I saw this traveler wake,
And she her silken bed forsake.
Who went to bed at best untidy,
Arose at length an Aphrodite.
Riddle of the Week from May 15 2022
A single ring so he can't go
A different ring for deadly show
A bloody wave to bring him near
A bloody end, the crowd will cheer
It's always he and never she...
What? You don't believe me?
Riddle of the Week from May 08 2022
It's clear a dormitory
Is indeed a dirty room
And that a schoolmaster
Matches the classroom.
But did you know a funeral
Is a form of real fun?
And that eleven plus two
Is the same as twelve plus one?
Riddle of the Week from May 01 2022
One goes in and five come out,
Though the one and five are not the same.
The burglar keeps them close to him
To help the thief avoid the blame.
Lose your touch but keep it safe,
Shield against both ice and flame.
Riddle of the Week from Apr 24 2022
When at work
I reduce in size.
When I'm not
My status lies.
As you age
More you've bought.

Riddle of the Week from Apr 17 2022
A leader who listens and stays in place
A way to help electrons race
A master met inside a car
On narrow roads that go quite far
Riddle of the Week from Apr 10 2022
My Master's armored side to side,
But sometimes sand gets in,
To irritate his tender hide,
And that's when I begin.
I grab the pest and hide it deep,
Inside a white cocoon.
Forevermore the pest I keep
Within a precious moon.

Riddle of the Week from Apr 03 2022
A neighbor who stays far away
Rarely seen by light of day
Seems to blush when seen at night
An avatar for those who fight
Now distant travelers have dropped in
To crawl upon his cool, dry skin
A fearsome pair keep company
Swimming in an empty sea.
