The Great BeastRiddles are little poems or phrases that pose a question that needs answering. Riddles frequently rhyme, but this is not a requirement.
I am a wild, untamed beast:
I command respect and awe in most,
and those who regard me as harmless
will most likely find themselves dead by my hand.
Men cannot control me, or hold me behind bars,
But they ride me. However,
They must use caution, for at any moment I can
Rear up, throw them aloft,
and swallow them whole.
Poems have been written to my mighty roar,
And yet children play carelessly beside me.
I am a mighty entity, and one day
I shall rise above the entire Earth.
What am I?
AnswerI am naught but the sea.
How, you ask?
Those who do not respect me will surely
Drown in my vast expanse.
I am untamed, and cannot be held behind bars,
For my pounding surf and relentless tides
Wear away all barriers in the end.
Men may ride me, but a
Passing storm or whirlpool might bring low
Even the most able sailor.
Poems have been written of my mighty roar
As my surf pounds against the rocks of the shore,
And yet beaches are a place of relaxation
I will one day flood the Earth
When the land is worn away to rubble
By my relentless erosion.
