Riddles are little poems or phrases that pose a question that needs answering. Riddles frequently rhyme, but this is not a requirement.
What`s a box with no locks, keys or a lid,
but inside a treasure of gold is hid?
Hint1. It`s small enough to fit in your pocket.
2. You have probably seen some in your life.
3. You probably have some in your house.
4. The word "box" is not a literal meaning.

A box without hinges, key, or lid,
Yet inside golden treasure is hid.
