Has Wings But Cannot Fly

What has wings but can not fly.
Is enclosed, but can outside also lie.
Can open itself up or close itself away.
Is the place of kings and queens,
And doggerel of every means.
What is it upon which I stand,
Which can lead us to different lands?

A stage.

Up A Hill

Up a hill,
Down a hill,
Over them I may roam,
But after all my walking,
There’s no place like my own.

Your home.

A Laugh A Cry

A laugh, a cry,
A moan, a sigh.

What am I?

Little Cat’s Feet

It comes in on little cat’s feet,
Is neither sour, nor sweet.
Hovers in the air,
And then is not there.

Fog or mist

Sweet Tooth

Sweet tooth, ah shoot,
All gone, we all long,
For another piece.

Many and One

They are many and one,
They wave and they drum,
Used to cover a stare,
They go with you everywhere.

Your hands.

All Those Legs

Two legs sat upon three legs with one leg in his lap.
In comes four legs, grabs one leg, and runs off with him.
Up jumps two legs, grabs up three legs, throws it after four legs,
and makes him bring back one leg.

Who are we?

One leg is a leg of mutton. Two legs is a person. Three legs is a stool. Four legs is a dog.

In Oven But Not Baked

What must be in the oven yet can not be baked?
Grows in the heat yet shuns the light of day?
What sinks in water but rises with air?
Looks like sand, but is fine as hair?

Speaks Without Words

What is it that speaks without any words?
And can be loudly and distinctly heard?
Will drive away friend, and foe alike.
And is enough to make a stolid man’s face alight?

Long Legs Crooked Thighs

Long legs, crooked thighs,
Little head and no eyes.
No burn, make a ting,
Use hands, but no ring.

What am I?

A pair of tongs.
