My Name From A GodRiddles are little poems or phrases that pose a question that needs answering. Riddles frequently rhyme, but this is not a requirement.
I'm the smallest of my kind, no doubt about that;
Compared to my brothers, I seem like a rat.
It's awfully cold here, with poisonous snow.
My name came from a god, a god with great might;
Although you know of me, I'm way out of your sight.
What am I?
AnswerThe planet Pluto.
Stanza 1: Pluto is the smallest planet.
Stanza 2: The snow is a methane and nitrogen snow that is poisonous to us.
Stanza 3: Pluto is the Roman god of the Underworld (Hades in Greek myths). Pluto is too far away to be seen from Earth (without a telescope).
