Question

My signature cherished, I’m world renowned,

Ever in flight above the ground.

Teeth of a bull chewing in time,

Gnawing on knots, shunning the find.

Hands at the ready, arms at the stay,

Heart like the sun beating away.

Ears like a rabbit pinned to the side;

Listening close, far, and wide.

Eighteen in all, each heading a state,

Ever awaiting the fall of fate.

reminds me of wind, but I am almost positive the answer is more complicated than that.

Does Heading refer to direction?

it makes sense for it to be ships, perhaps pirate ships?

Is it the original 18 zodiac constellations the babylonians came up with? Fall of fate meaning their ultimate demise?

If that's the right answer I'd bet noone could have come up with that without googling... haha

other than that i haven't a clue

is it a semi truck hint:18 of them

Nope - second line doesn't fit your answer.

And it's not zodiac signs either; those are only twelve.

airships (no matter what kind)

I'm leaning towards agreeing with the 18 original zodiac signs, but if I were to guess I'd say it's 18 elements from the periodic table that have the same abbreviation as a state of the union.

the ones outside the Zodiac.

If you googled, then you'd know this. But that answer (minus what I said) does fit....

For now, I'm waiting to see who's right.

Is it something to do with clocks or watches? "Teeth" of cogs, "Hands" on a dial, "Heart...beating away" = ticking. But unfortunately nothing else makes sense!

Could be the eighteen pirate lords from pirates of carribean movies running their crews? I forget how many there are. Or maybe its an 18 year old smoker?

I still think it's a compass ruler - picture attached

My signature cherished, I’m world renowned - ?

Ever in flight above the ground - Compass rulers float above the ground on the points

Teeth of a bull chewing in time - The points "chew" into the paper on a chart

Gnawing on knots, shunning the find - "Knots" refers to nautical miles on a ship's chart

Hands at the ready, arms at the stay - The points are the arms, not sure about the arms

Heart like the sun beating away - ?

Ears like a rabbit pinned to the side - see picture

Listening close, far, and wide.

Eighteen in all, each heading a state - 18 inch ruler. Ruler is a head of state.

Ever awaiting the fall of fate.
