    Riddles 24.1.08
    As round as an apple
    As deep as a cup
    And all the Kings horses could not pull it up?
    A well.
    Around the house around the house and sleeps in the corner at night?
    A beesum (besom).
    I went up the little road and down the little road
    And brought it on my shoulder?
    A ladder.
    It goes from house to house and sleeps out all night?
    a path.
