Daily looked for, never here, Still approaching, coming near.
Thousands for its visit wait, But alas for their fate,
Though they expect me to appear, They will never find me here.
I weaken all men for hours each day.
I show you strange visions while you are away.
I take you by night, by day take you back,
None suffer to have me, but do from my lack.
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, kills laughter.
A precious stone, as clear as diamond.
Seek it out while the sun's near the horizon.
Though you can walk on water with its power,
try to keep it, and it'll vanish in an hour.
White fat and fluffy,
May even look like a puppy.
Seems heavy but is light,
Floats about without a worry,
But if it turns dark you have to hurry!
Oh, how I love my dancing feet!
They stay together - oh so neat.
And when I want to walk a line,
They all stay together and do double time.
I count them up, ten times or more,
And race on-off, across the floor.

What am I?
When I am visible to you, you cannot see me,
but when I am invisible, you long to see me.
I am plenty with someone patient, but all the more scarce with a hasty one.
I am greater than all, but still in the control of those who value my existence.
Who am I?
I saw a strange creature. Long, hard, and straight,
thrusting into a round, dark opening.
Preparing to discharge its load of lives.
Puffing and squealing noises accompanied it,
then a final screech as it slowed and stopped.
A hundred years I once did live, and often wholesome food did give,
yet all that time I ne'er did roam, so much as a half a mile from my home,
my days were spent devoid of strife, until at last I lost my life.
And since my death – I pray give ear, I oft have traveled far and near.
I am the third from a sparkle bright,
I thrive throughout the day and night.
Deep in the path of a cows white drink.
I've had thousands of millions of years to think.
But one of my creatures is killing me.
And so the question I ask to thee, is who am I?

I can be winding and I can be straight.
I can be smooth and I can be rough. Sometimes both.
I start out black but fade to brown the more I am used.
My favorite colors are yellow and white, and I love stripes and dashed lines.
What am I?
With me you are blind, To others and what they are,
Over me you cannot see, Even though I'm in your head,
I am full of myself, I think I'm better than you,
I'm a horrible thing to be, Can you tell me,
What am I?
A man lives on the top floor of a hotel.
When he is out with a friend or out on a rainy day,

When he goes out alone or on a sunny day,
he goes half way up and walks the rest of the way up.
I am small, but, when entire, of force to set a town on fire;
Let but one letter disappear, I then can hold a herd of deer;
Take one more off, and then you'll find I once contained all human kind.
