Some Feathered flutter thro my breast,
Some Ghosts drive me thro airy's deep
And yet in me may none make nest
Nor creature on my bosom creep.

What am I?

Sometimes I'm like a shepherd's flock;
My name in Old English means "Rock!"

Did you know that riddle in the singular ought to have an -s?


"\Rid"dle\, n. [For riddels, s being misunderstood as the plural ending; OE. ridels, redels. AS. r?dels; akin to D. raadsel, G. r["a]thsel; fr. AS. r?dan to counsel or advise, also, to guess. [root]116. Cf. Read.] "  Dictionary.com

It's just like the word nadder that man mistook as "adder" after "an".  

"Adder...illustrates a process known as false splitting, or juncture loss: the word came from Old English naedre and kept its n into the Middle English period, but later during that stage of the language people started analyzing the phrase a naddre as an addre - the false splitting that has given us adder." - Dictionary.com

I travel light
on high ways
wearing white
or wearing greys
sometimes with blush
upon my face;
by day or night
wingless my flight.

I have a riddle for you all, it's really simple...

There's a body lying dead on a bed, and on the floor beside it is a pair of scissors. The scissors were instrumental in his death, yet there's no trace of blood. The body reveals no signs of any cuts or bruises. How could the person have been murdered with the pair of scissors?

Don't cheat by looking it up on google!

Thank you Essorant for the coal.

I think of coal nuggets as future diamonds.

CLUE: Let's just say that the body was soaking wet....

----------------------------------------

When I heard this riddle the first time I didn't know the answer but once I found the answer, I'm like "how come I couldn't figure it out!" Just read every single word and piece it together...

Technically it's not a riddle - it's a lateral thinking puzzle.

Nasty things.

(A man wakes up and looks outside his bedroom window in the morning and see's 100 dead bodies lying outside. What happened?)

Heh

Oh and I have no idea. Someone cut his IV line or some such thing?
