hey Thalia - dont know about less focus on definition.  The fifth is actually four different definitions of the same word.  There are certainly mere discriptive clues.  But generally these are two line What-Am-I's.  Of course with a little wordplay most of which is a more literal meaning vs the idiomatic meaning/common use of a phrase.  Can think of two instances where the wordplay is different.  One of them already discovered by Wilson in the first clue - "'tis the sound of" hinting at a homophone.  And a different instance in the sixth one.  Hope that didn't throw you off...too much.

Maybe I worded that poorly. I meant the whole line isn't necessarily strictly a definition. More of a description in some cases, as you said.

"There's no such thing as 'one, true way'; the only answers worth having are the ones you find for yourself; leave the world better than you found it. Love, freedom, and the chance to do some good -- they're the things worth living and dying for, and if you aren't willing to die for the things worth living for, you might as well turn in your membership in the human race." -- Diana Tregarde in Burning Water by Mercedes Lackey
