hmmm ... something frozen?
A Glacier?
no, the frozen thing is way off! I couldn't stand to think about it any longer so I cheated and googled for the answer. I don't quite understand the answer I got....... anyways here is the riddle again for those who don't cheat, because I see we've started a new page:
Two bodies have I, though both joined in one; the longer I stand, the quicker I run

I know it's not my turn but, when I cheated I also saw a riddle I liked (and understood!) and of course I'm eager to repeat it here and see if people who don't cheat can come up with the answer.
I live above a star, I have eleven neighbors.
the moon?
no, let's see, it can be longer and still cryptic, there is more than one version out there.

I live above a star, and yet I do not burn.
I have eleven neighbors, and yet none of them turn.
Closer than the heavens, by the naked eye I'm seen.
I am visited in sequences (first, last, or in-between).
A constellation of the zodiac?
Thought alot about this riddle and came to the same conclusion: the constellation of the zodiac..? - A L Puppy Smilie
no, it is not a constellation. Now I'll get creative, and add my own rhyme (not very good, but accurate enough!)

I live above a star, and yet I do not burn.
I have eleven neighbors, and yet none of them turn.
Closer than the heavens, by the naked eye I'm seen.
I am visited in sequences (first, last, or in-between).
I am often pushed, but I am never pulled.
My symbol could mean luck, or so it has been told.
Okay that was a hard one: the number seven on a non-rotary phone's keypad?

yes -- the number 7 button on a touch-tone phone is correct. And I was all ready to add another two badly rhyming lines! ("...I am branded like my neighbors, 4 initials I have got / If you've come to visit us, conversation you have sought...")

Given the answer, it's obviously not an ancient riddle but whoever came up with the first two lines was brilliant. It really does set you off to thinking about constellations and other heavenly objects...
Riddle me this: What kind of cheese is made backwards?
Close Virunor, but no ragic. Elf With a Big Grin Smilie
Edam cheese. ("Made" backwards)

Here's one:

Ever changing though the eye can't measure,
Concealed within may be many treasures.
Some find safety beneath its gate,
While some may die beneath its weight!
Old and broken, it brings forth life.

(I have 2 more lines if you can't get this)
a stone?
Yep, your turn Turgon.
I shoot yet I am no bow
I've a tail that always shows
I tend to fall but I've no pain
And I am known by many names
I guide those whose way they loose
My face is red, white, or blue.
What am I ?
A comet?
You are right Grondy in the sense that comet is one of the many names so give us you're riddle please
What comes once in a minute, twice in a moment, but never in a thousand years?
The letter m.

They have not flesh nor feathers, nor scales nor bone;
But they do have fingers and thumbs of their own.
Gloves ?
Can a non-veteran man living in the Washington D.C. area be buried in Arlington National Cemetery?
No... he's still alive.

We travel much, yet prisoners are, and close confined to boot. With the swiftest horse we keep pace, yet always go on foot.
Is it my go?
Yep Spurs.
I say everything I hear to others around. I'm not an animal, nor part of the human race. I will, immediately, repeat after you; But only if my tail is in place. What am I?
Nope close though.
A mynah bird?
yes Gud daedheloth a microphone.
If Gud daedheloth doesn't post a new riddle by Thursday, anyone else may do it on Friday. Happy Elf Smilie
Thirty white horses on a red hill,
First they champ,
Then they stamp,
Then they stand still.
Chompers, otherwise known as teefs or teeth.
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.
What am I?
The future?
Yes, but not as all encompassing; see if you can get more specific.
You got it Turgon; your turn. Happy Elf Smilie
sorry i took so long

My mouth is large or small, is shone
My long fangs are made of stone
I seem to eat those who come in
My home, the earth, I live within.
come on lords and ladies someone have a go.
A cave?
yep ur turn Grondy.
