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.
Walked out to my car, looked up, dropped everything to grab a camera. The first bit was recorded using a large F-stop on a 50mm lens, then I tried switching to a wide-angle lens (second part of the video), but it just didn’t do them justice.
Just ever so slightly blue.
The bright sunny day, fades away in the west;
Slowly it dims, until only darkness is left.
We keep ourselves busy throughout the day,
When night finally comes, we sleep right away.
Right as the sun reaches the horizon so low,
Gold fills the sky, with a crimson-orange glow.
Every eye can see this painting in the sky,
No matter how far, we see the canvas light.
As you lay your head down, to rest tonight,
think about the times, think about our life.
The worries of today bring stress to tomorrow;
God lifts the burdens if we give Him our sorrow.
For right when we think the light is all gone,
A brilliant, gold glow, suddenly comes on!
At last we rest, so peacefully tonight;
content with today, and tomorrow looking bright.
