A Fiery RiddleRiddles are little poems or phrases that pose a question that needs answering. Riddles frequently rhyme, but this is not a requirement.
Watch me from a distant place,
See me kiss the sky;
Watch as from around me race
The creatures who lived nearby.
I cease my explosive kiss,
And rivers that engulf the trees
Make their way down with ease
And sometimes even shallows seas.
Not earth nor water, wood nor air
Can halt me as they would,
My power is even sometimes good,
Though not many would care.
See me huff and blow out smoke,
Though I do not smoke things.
Watch as the land around me's smote,
To which the inhabitants cling.
You've heard my tale, and known my place
And stayed for my game,
But I wonder, prove to me,
Could you pick my face?
Now for the question you've waited to hear,
Can you strike the mark, or even come near?
Tell me my only one, that has stayed the same,
Give me an answer, oh, what is my name?
HintYou've made me sad, that I am so hidden.
Here's a hint that I have bidden,
One I know you desire,
It's rather simple really, I am of the fire.
AnswerI hope you watched from afar,
Or else you would have died,
Even using plane or car
My kiss erupts to the skies.
My neighbors flee in terror
From my burning wrath,
And they aren't with error
As I make my deadly path.
I melt the earth and boil the seas,
And air takes long to touch me;
My molten touch does what it please
To all that it can see.
I have a name, a grand one too,
I even some fame so,
I'm surprised you read it through;
Whatever else could I be, besides a volcano?
See another brain teaser just like this one...
Or, just get a random brain teaser
