She so peaceful, yet causes fear
Him so bright and full of cheer
She rests the body, he wakes the soul
Him so light, she black as coal
Her with mole and tiny bright freckles
He covers us with tiny tear speckles
She hides us, he beams with pride
He her husband, she his bride
He in bright silk, her all in velvet
A yin-yang marriage as they tell it
Two lovers who meet but twice a day
When he must go, she need stay
Now I ask you, who are they?



Answer

Day and night.
Hide

Day and Night,
Night and day, this was the one
Only this beneath the moon or under the sun
It's no matter teaser where you are
I think of you
Day and night, night and day...good one.

I also thought SUN and MOON.
For 'penguinboy,' using poetic license, the MOON is black once a month, at NEW MOON, and the SUN and MOON meet twice a day because their LOCALES meet, once at dawn and again at dusk.
Lovely poem, lovely riddle.

Very well written verse, so poetic! The teaser was pretty easy, though. Like some others, at first I thought it was the sun and the moon, but later corrected myself. A very satisfying teaser. Thanks.

Nice. I thought sun and moon immediately. Didn't look at the hint. The correct answer is better I think. Great job.

Excellent job on your teaser. For those of you that are arguing for sun/moon...I thought of that answer too, but it is disqualified by the line "her with a mole and tiny bright freckles..." That makes it obvious that it is the night sky and not just the moon. Great job!!!

Written very well.

Very well written. I enjoyed this teaser.

Since i thought sun/moon I hate to say it ,but the answer failed with the mole and freckles line. But it sure was a good teaser.

A very unique and poetic teaser. You put some thought into this one and it will get many to use their heads! The moon will not work because it will appear during the day time and/or sunlight hours, too! I enjoy the twist! Keep them coming.

loved it, thought moon and sun

I too answered SUN and MOON and I believe it works as well. Here's why:

Regarding the dark: the sun has no power of light on it's own. When it appears illuminated at night, it is the reflection of the sun we're seeing. You could say the moon is dark.

Regarding the mole and freckles: the moon appears to have moles and freckles on it when viewed through a telescope-- it's pock marked. The moon's craters look like freckles!

I thought this teaser was very beautifully written. Our morning teaser wrapped up in a piece of fine poetry. I truly enjoyed this.

And to the jerk using profanity in the comment section-- you're not going to be around long so SEE YA.

OOPS! I meant the moon has no power of light on it's own. Of course the sun does!

Should have said- "Regarding the dark: the MOON has no power of light on it's own."

I loved the poetry - I said dusk and dawn though which sounds much more poetic than "day and night" - Thanks!

Yayyyy I got a riddle! I got a riddle!! Yippeeee!!! That must mean it's a good one. Or maybe it's just because I'm an amateur astronomer and am often thinking of the night sky and celestial bodies as physical poetry...

Anyways, I was also thinking sun & moon at first, but a few more read-throughs and I decided to go with night & day because it seemed to "fit" better. Yippee, I say again!

WHAT A BEAUTIFUL POEM!! I LOVED IT. THERE IS ONLY ONE THING WRONG WITH IT.. I DIDNT THINK OF IT FIRST!!

DEEPSEA YOU ARE TRULY A POET!!!
elentirAus*
Sep 22, 2009

The moon and sun are an invalid answer because the moon can be visible at any time of the day, making the meeting with the sun twice a day very inaccurate. Not to mention, how would the moon hide us?

Great poem. This was written by a famous poet in a magazine I read a couple of years ago . I don't remember who it was.

I got it at the part of meeting twice a day. Great Job!

Sep 22, 2009

So good! I thought of it before I got through the riddle. I thought of the sun and the moon at first, but realized the clues worked better for day and night.
Very nice! Thanks!

Doehead you must be mistaken. I wrote this myself.

Oh my gosh! I can't believe that I got this one even without the hint. As one poet to another, your poem is lovely! Thanks for posting.

Easy one
I don't know who deepsea is,but this was written by someone else. The last line was changed by deepsea. It originally read( for I am night,and he is day). I know it was written in the 18hds by a poet named Homer something.
