WHAT AM I?
I have no voice and yet I speak to you, I tell of all things in the world that people do. I have leaves, but I am not a tree, I have pages, but I am not a bride or royalty. I have a spine and hinges, but I am not a man or a door, I have told you all, I cannot tell you more. What am I?
No legs have I to dance,
No lungs have I to breathe,
No life have I to live or die
And yet I do all three.
Only one color, but not one size,
Stuck at the bottom, yet easily flies.
Present in sun, but not in rain,
Doing no harm, and feeling no pain.
The beginning of eternity
The end of time and space
The beginning of every end
And the end of every place.
What is it that when you take away the whole, you still have some left over?
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND....HAPPY NEW YEAR!
