Let It GoRiddles are little poems or phrases that pose a question that needs answering. Riddles frequently rhyme, but this is not a requirement.
Just how successful you will be
Depends on your delivery
Looking forward to a collapse
Don't let your concentration lapse
Exhibiting good lane control
Is key for you to reach your goal
That wondrous crash will greet your ear
When the target's met by a sphere
What am I?
AnswerThe game of bowling.
lines 1-2: The way that you deliver the bowling ball will determine whether you are successful or not e.g. if you get a strike, or if your ball falls into the channel (gutter).
lines 3-4: The "collapse" is that of the pins falling down, which is your objective. It takes concentration to successfully deliver the ball to where you want it to go.
lines 5-6: "Lane control" is keeping the ball on the bowling lane, nothing to do with driving!
lines 7-8: The "wondrous crash" is the sound of the ball hitting the pins, and the pins hitting each other, especially during a strike. The "target" is the set of pins, and the "sphere" is the bowling ball.
