A Versatile GrowerRiddles are little poems or phrases that pose a question that needs answering. Riddles frequently rhyme, but this is not a requirement.
On rock and tree my life does lounge,
And ground as well my home may be found.
Growing up is not my thing,
Since close to home is where I abound.
My roots don't go all too deep,
In fact you may say they are rather meek.
Useful purpose in me can be found,
For like a sponge I will sop up what is around.
Now tell me true what I am.
Mosses will expand out and around their area, but they don't grow tall in height. They also lack true roots, so they won't reach below the ground with an active root structure. They thrive on moisture to survive and help to absorb and store water that can be used for dry spells to help the surrounding plant life to survive.
