Question

Posted · Report post

It has roots as nobody sees,

And is taller than trees,

Up, up it goes,

And yet never grows.

What is it?

a mountain

I Knew that sounded familiar!

This Hobbit riddle is faily easy, but its my favorite:

A box without hinges, key or lid,

Yet golden treasure inside is hid.

I guessed the answer, but I'd have to disagree with Gollum on a technicality...

Mountains certainly do grow, in at least one sense of the word. How else did they get so tall, and gradually continue to get taller in some cases? Perhaps man-made objects with underground anchoring such as skyscrapers would be an acceptable alternative answer.

Lausus is correct. Good one.

A box without hinges, key or lid,

Yet golden treasure inside is hid.

An egg?
