Riddles

If our students speak English well, we can give them some more difficult riddles as well:

1, If you break me
I do not stop working,
If you touch me
I may be snared,
If you lose me
Nothing will matter.

2, My life can be measured in hours,
I serve by being devoured.
Thin, I am quick
Fat, I am slow
Wind is my foe.

3, You heard me before,
Yet you hear me again,
Then I die,
‘Till you call me again.

4, I build up castles.
I tear down mountains.
I make some men blind,
I help others to see.
What am I?

5, Soft and fragile is my skin
I get my growth in mud
I’m dangerous as much as pretty
For if not careful, I draw blood.

6, It cannot be seen, it cannot be felt,
Cannot be heard, cannot be smelt,
Lies behind stars and under hills,
And empty holes it fills.
Comes first follows after,
Ends life kills laughter.

7, If you have it, you want to share it.
If you share it, you don’t have it.
What is it?
