Choose the correct letter from each clue in the rhyme below. When put in order, the four letters will spell the answer to the riddle.

My first is in pet but not in be.
My second in off but not in free.
My third in end you'll always find.
My last in me but not in wind.
My whole a word that tells a tale;
The story shall not grow old or stale.

knbrain,i'll try to help you out .
the first in pet but not in be.(first letter can be p or t,since the letter is not e,it's in pet but not in be).
the second in off but not in free(second letter has to be o,since the letter f is in both off and free and the clue says in off but not in free)
the third in end you'll always find(well for now e,n or d can be the answer)
my last in me but not in wind(not a good clue in my opinion so for now m or e for the last letter of this puzzle)
the last two lines just help you out with the answer.
with what you have being the first letter t or p
,second letter o,third letter e,n or d,and the fourth letter m or e,you should come up with poem.

Not the best example of this type of riddle. Usually the two compared words in each line are related to each other. You know, like, "My first is in pet, but not in friend."

And in the fourth one, there are not even any letters shared between "me" and "wind"...why even mention "wind"? A little random and meaningless.
