Alone I fall to the earth and raise as many in rebirth.
Grind and sift and pound me down,
I raise again a golden brown
So you may live through my defeat

What am I ?





What Next?

Doh! I thought it was bread!

whoa...
Some advice: Think laterally. (whatever THAT means.).

Bread doesn't rise and then drop itself to create itself once again.

Good teaser... Almost had me stumped but I think the first line gave it away.

John 12:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.

At first I thought acorn, but then I was stumped. I never got wheat, the closest I got was bread.

we make our own bread once in awhile, so this one wasn't too hard for me to figure out... excellently composed and a lot of fun to solve!

Nice riddle, but easy. I got it straight away .

(I think the hint makes it too easy...)

very nice. the only part i don't get is the first line. "alone I fall . . . and raise as many". I guess I'm thinking that one grain of wheat alone can't make any bread at all. It takes many. So why "alone"?

tahoe
perhaps because you plant a single grain of wheat "alone"and from it you get a stalk with "many" grains

Nice riddle ! Only had to read it twice to get it! well done.

Pound me correctly, I got it right on the second try. I don't understand the defeat of what? Not being able to withstand the shedding or grazing or being grounded into another substance.?
