What has roots that nobody sees,
Is taller than trees,
Up, up it goes,
Yet it never grows?
A mountain (from Tolkien)

Ok so i was on a website and saw this riddle and i thought i figured out the answer and then i clicked to see the answer and it said mountains…idk how a mountain has roots that nobody sees, and i looked on a forum and people were arguing between kite and mountain….my thought was an airplane,
It has roots, (route) play on words kind of thing, it has a root thats never seen
It goes up up up and never grows
And its taller than a tree
Just my thought

@Mikem Mountains have roots. Here’s a geological society article about them.

It’s from the hobbit and there are a few more from hobbit. Thirty white horses on a red hill,
First they champ,
Then they stamp,
Then they stand still.
A box without hinges, key or lid,
Yet golden treasure inside is hid.
This thing all things devours:
Birds, beasts, trees, flowers;
Gnaws iron, bites steel;
Grinds hard stones to meal;
Slays king, ruins town,
And beats high mountain down.

….except mountains do grow (it’s called orogeny in geology). The Himalayas are still growing faster than the rate they are being weathered down.

I see a kite high in the sky but the string and person “rooting it to the earth” are often not within my eyesight (unseen). Kites go up, up, up -higher than the trees- but they do not grow.
Makes sense to me. Mountains…not so much. Mountains do grow. That’s what makes them mountains.? And roots?????
