Hereís a riddle just for fun
For you to solve before itís done.
The answer yet you do not know
So on your mark, get set, and GO!

River running out of cup
Spitting image filling up.
Rocks are tumbling to the floor
Piling upward to the door.
Look inside to see whatís left,
Back to work, best be swift.

If the answer you didnít win,
Do a flip and start again!

Just for fun, and fun it was!
I liked this riddle, just... because?


Easy enough, but masterfully and mirthfully done yet again. This one was satisfyingly entertaining. (pardon my gratuitous verboseness.)

Did the "Door" line have a reference, or was it just poetic license to make the rhyme?

Please! I'm taken aback! A door is an opening through which things pass. It can be anywhere . . . right, left, below or ABOVE. All lines, words, metaphors are with rhyme and reason. :)

But most of what we're talking about are fixed and don't open or close...

But I'm just being picky 'cause I'm intimidated by your awesome riddles (and sad that the one I actually knew was already answered by the time I saw it!)

And being even pickier, that's a doorway... a door can be opened or closed!
