I inhabit no great hall, and covet no fine car,

I have no tongue to call my own; in hand I carry stars,

I flip for love and back my babes and settle where it’s wet.

A handsome host I cannot boast, perhaps you’ll name me yet.

(Answer must be specific)

Just curious, Chic, was it the fancy hall, fine car (Wind in the Willows) clue that gave it away?

No, tho it should have now I think about it! That line made me think of inanimate objects and animals. I was so proud of Morgan Dollar, but couldn't really reconcile wet places, and wondered why babes instead of nags. And the sun flipping was a stretch-- :blush: So,

don't tell anybody, but I googled tongueless animals, hoping it wasn't just a metaphor.

:) And I was familiar with tree toads, which have front paws that could be called star-like.

Riddles that have facts I can research are a bit easier for me than the ones like pinky toes or coaster which rely on metaphor connections.

Love your riddles, Shakee, even when I can't guess them and your phrasing/language use. :thumbsup:
