And here is the other riddle! Again, this is a referential riddle. If you understand the reference, the riddle is trivial to solve.
Seed of iron in the ground,
Cast by hearts of evil ice,
Grows with speed at the sound
Of songs of Lion’s new life.
Gleaming light in the night,
A strange and wonderful world,
Shine forth into snowy white,
As a beacon to sails unfurled.
Creatures of the dark
Walk under the starry sky.
Only landmark seen afar
Is the spot where you shine.
Hello! Finals have been a real killer, but they are finally winding down (no pun intended). I thought up this riddle this evening and figured I would let you take a stab at it! It was not what I intended for this week’s “Weekly What?”, but it will do. Solve this riddle! Who is “You?”
Caught betwixt sunlight, starlight;
The beauty quietly awaits.
A glimmering, shimmering sight;
Always, too soon, you abate.
The end of one, another long turn.
Moonlight spins a tale.
Dreams drift hazily in nocturnes
As you, across empyreal, sail.
Once departed, Dawn of night,
Sleep sings, softly lulls.
Return on morning’s eventide:
You, most beautiful of all.
The clouds move in, so dark and black;
And thunder rolls and lightning flashed.
With fearful eyes and quivering hearts,
We watched the light and dark sides clash.
We cannot know the mystery;
There are things that go unseen.
A battle between good and evil
Is happening behind the scenes.
Rain pours on to the hard blacktop;
Mists rise up to high treetops.
Torrential water falls from above,
As shadows shed their loads, thousands of drops.
The battle continues for a short while,
Until the payloads of ammo are empty
Shadows are scattered across the sky
As the clouds break, revealing the light.
Light wins again, but that’s no surprise:
God is creator, the great Lord of life.
Victory is His, there is no contest;
Shadows for a season, but then ends all strife.
Did you solve this riddle of mine?
Will you solve it in the nick of time?
Do you want some seeing light?
Would some rest refresh your mind?
Does the maze repeat a sight?
Were you desperate for a place to hide?
Dreadful minotaur hunting your life?
Would you like a ball of twine?
Dearest, use my gift tonight?
Aren’t you tired of these rhymes?
I’m not dead if anyone is wondering. School is school. College tends to take it out of you, but also infuse you with inspiration to do more with your time. As I’ve said before, we only have so many moments to live, we need to spend them wisely. I’ve been falling out of my good habits, which is dangerous. You’ve got to build good habits; keeping them is equally and crucially important! Anyways, have fun with this riddle. They really are a good mental exercise for me.
