A Riddle

Ahh, it’s been a while. I admit, I’ve been having trouble writing poetry lately. Life’s just been a bit hectic and complicated. I did, however, write a rhyming riddle today that I would be happy to use in a campaign so I thought I would share it. 🙂 Enjoy!


What has no flame, but a burning kiss
And casts off light that’s hard to miss?
Ringing echoes all around
A purposeful and steady sound.
It possesses no fixed form
Lest clouds and death make it transform.


My answer for this was Forged Metal, though I’ve had people answer in other ways that also work. Honestly I recommend if you use a riddle at a table to consider allowing any answer that can work with the riddle put forth by your players to be acceptable as it can get very frustrating for those that aren’t particularly good at riddles to keep guessing. I speak from personal experience. 😆
