Question

Ok boys and girls, for all of you still up and running, here's a light one for good night

I look forward to the answer in the morning ^_^

In a cave they make me dwell

And strong men learn to keep me well

Though I am source of much delight

They often frown when I take flight

I do say this bit in jest, I feel I serve a mad man best

a bird more like a canary because miners used them to signal a dangerous gas in the mines.

gold right?

nice... but no. the "flight" you mean like its stolen? again nice. but doesn't quite dwell in a cave and we can't "make" it do anything.

Wow, that's absolutely great. You have more then "a point"! The only thing that saves me here is that we don't quite make it dwell in a cave right? And they more then "frown" when it takes flight. But this surprised me.

I have an answer that fits better and as you've done my riddles before you know the answer is always simple and required no previous knowledge, reading list or video library.

The answer is always something you do, or have, or can see or be yourself.

But really, you made me re-read it twice.

yeah it's pretty. but requires previous specific rather then common knowledge so not simple. and "strong men"? "mad man"? doesn't work.

Oh I get it. Best answer so far and it has nothing to do with what I'm looking for. Awesome.

FEELINGS!!!

Ha ha i can tell you are no longer a Newbie! Not it, but can have a lot to do with it in the arrangement of the riddle and used as key to answer.

Again, like the thinking but not it. Source of much delight? Not the first association for that...
