Riddle Poems

I. The beginning of eternity,

The end of time and space,

The beginning of every end,

And the end of every place.

 II. There is one that has

a head without an eye,

And there’s one that has

an eye without a head.

You may find the answer if you try;

And when all is said,

Half the answer hangs upon a thread.

-Christina Rossetti

 III. We are little airy Creatures,

All of diff’rent Voice and Features,

One of us in Glass is set,

One of us you’ll find in Jet,

T’other you may see in Tin,

And the fourth a Box within,

If the fifth you should pursue

It can never fly from you.

-Jonathan Swift

 IV. At the back of every Igloo,

And the middle of the Moon,

Always running around in Loops you’ll find me,

If you look inside the Room.

What am I?


I. The letter e

II. Pins and needles

III. Vowels

IV. oo
