Riddles are little poems or phrases that pose a question that needs answering. Riddles frequently rhyme, but this is not a requirement.
This thing all things devour:
Birds, beast, trees, flowers;
Gnaws iron, bites steel;
Grinds hard stones to meal;
Slays king, ruins town,
and beats high mountains down.

|I love this riddle, but I think credit should be given to the original creator: Tolkien.|

|It's good to come across this "timeless" riddle on any site - thanks for submitting it. |
However, I think there should be a protocol for giving credit where it is due when anything is copied.
