Looking In, Looking Out

Riddles are little poems or phrases that pose a question that needs answering. Riddles frequently rhyme, but this is not a requirement.

You may find fire within me
Though to water I've been compared.
You may also find a twinkle
When through my pane you stare.

When of wind I am the calm
The center holding still.
When of you, a different part
My bottom lid, my sill.

You may look into me
only to see through.
You may indeed look out of me
Through my frame of varied hue.

The riddle in three parts
as letters in my name.
The riddle shows you who I am
But tell me just the same.

Who am I?



Answer

An eye.
Hide




What Next?

Can't think of when an eye is compared to water. Hmmm...

Beautiful poetry.

Perhaps when someone cries

I like the riddle - I write them like that, too. Was it hard for you? Hehe. Somehow I doubt it, I don't think they are hard. Anyways, a good one

ahem, people sometimes say that an eye is like a pool;
Pool=Water

I was thinking window, until you said it was three letters. Then the answer was clear. The eye. Thanks for the outstanding teaser. I loved it. Keep on posting.

"Fire in the eyes" is an expression used to show inner strength and passion

I thought the answer was "a window". but i am glad it wasnt because that would have been way to obvious. that was very well written. nice job.

I got it at the last minute before I gave up. Some of the lines were a bit strange in their wording, but it was okay!

Title gave it away. A bit on the easy side.

I knew window couldn't be the answer, but got stuck on it-should have had a broader view this morning Really neat to read!

Very nice poetry, and a good riddle.

My only question: How on earth does this a 1.89 difficulty? 0.89, maybe.
