Just DessertsRiddles are little poems or phrases that pose a question that needs answering. Riddles frequently rhyme, but this is not a requirement.
I involve some animals,
One was used so much long ago,
But now its use has softened.
The other one is a swimmer,
For it swims quite often.
I can be sad when I want to be sad,
And even angry, too.
But, nevertheless, I can be happy, overjoyed, and glad!
I can be shiny and beautiful,
But I have a hollowness within me,
And I can sometimes look dull.
I am the smallest in my family,
But I have the merriest voice
Because it is highest.
I'm not that heavy,
So you can carry me up and down; you have the choice!
But don't hurt me too much,
Or wear me out,
because part of me will burst,
And I will not speak in my tone of beauty to you
To serve you just desserts.
So take a guess
And we shall see
Just who exactly could I be?
HintWhen I say the use of the animal has 'softened', I mean that it is used less often.
A violin uses a bow which is made of horsehair and has a 'frog'. A violin is hollow, but can have a somewhat sweet sound. It is the smallest in the string family and it has the highest sound. When you 'hurt it too hard or wear it out', which means you break a string, then you have to replace it with a new one. Or, if it goes out of tune, you must tune it again for it to have its natural tone.
