riddles in the hobbit......

ok for all you hobbit lovers see if u can answer these riddles with out getting the answers from the book.


What has roots as nobody sees,
Is taller than trees
Up, up it goes,
And yet never grows?

Thirty white horses on a red hill,
First the champ,
Then they stamp,
Then they stand still.

Voiceless it cries,
Wingless flutters,
Toothless bites,
Mouthless mutters.

An eye in a blue face
Saw an eye in a green face.
"That eye is like to this eye"
Said the first eye,
"But in low place
Not in high place."

It cannot be seen, cannot be felt
cannot be heard, cannot be smelt.
it lies behind stars and under hills,
and empty holes it fills.
It comes first and follows after,
Ends life, kils laughter.

A box without hinges, key or lid,
yet golden treasure inside is hid.

Alive withouth breath,
As cold as death;
never thirsty, ever drinking,
All in mail never clinking.

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.

and finally......what have i got in my pockets?
