My veins extend beneath the earth,
My hands raised toward the sky,
I can seem to live forever,
Though many times I die.

I cry when I am wounded,
Sweet tears that help me heal,
I mourn and take off all my clothes,
When bitterness I feel.

What am I?

What Next?

I think the first part gave it away.

I totally agreed with Beckmoose
Dec 22, 2003

I agree with you but I thought that I'd make an easy one. The second part was meant to confuse a little and make it not as easy as the first part would be alone. The younger riddle solvers need some for them too.

It was fun, but I got it right away! Well, actually, my first guess was a plant....I got it afterwards though!! I didn't use the hint either!!!

PS: I'm squeamish, so the whole veins thing got me feeling really weak.

Cute riddle. I got it right away, though.

So easy it undid me, spent minutes trying to figure out exactly what kind of tree it was (thought I needed to be specific for the answer).
May 16, 2009

I guessed a tree right away from the first clue but the rest of the clues confused me.
May 16, 2009

Although the answer was quite easy, I question when branches became hands and leaves became clothes.
May 16, 2009

I thought Weeping Willow, so give me points for effort. Good job. Thanks for posting.

My music students just sang "The Tree Song" by Ken Medema for our spring program, so the answer came to me immediatly. (You can find the lyrics to this song on the internet and also hear Ken Medema himself sing it on YouTube with many beautiful pictures of trees.) I love trees at all times of the year! Thanks for an enjoyable riddle!
May 16, 2009

Very well done. Easy, but beautiful. Thanks.
May 16, 2009

Suuuuuuuuper Easy. Too easy.
May 16, 2009

Fun i enjoyed it!
May 16, 2009

EZ. i got it after i read the first line!
May 16, 2009

yeah that one was easy
May 16, 2009

Very good, I enjoyed it, however easy it was. Good job!
May 16, 2009

great one
May 16, 2012

Way too easy. I always like easy, but this was way way to easy to enjoy!
May 16, 2012

Obviously, too obviously, a tree. Maybe specifically a maple, the only tree that has sweet sap. I am not aware that a tree's losing sap helps it heal from injuries, though.
May 16, 2012

Thought sure someone would point out that the full answer should be decidious (sp?) tree.
May 16, 2012

"many times I die" - are there trees that live forever?
May 16, 2012

when it says "many times i die," it means that it hibernates for the winter and comes out in the spring.
May 16, 2012

that was so easy. I got it after the first two lines
May 16, 2012

I got it right away too. Unsual 4 me.
May 16, 2012

It may have been easy, but nicely written! Loving the blossoming trees in our neighborhood now!
May 17, 2015

I loved this one! Maybe easy, but beautifully written. Thanks!
May 17, 2015
