  1. Riddles
    What is deeper than the sea
    A tailors thimble, because there is no bottom to it
    As black as ink and ink it isn't
    As green as silk and silk it isn't
    As white milk and milk it isn't
    It hops on the ground like hailstones
    A magpie
    What animal walks on four feet in the morning, two at noon and three in the evening
    A man
    I know a little thing that goes around the table. 'Tis often cut but never eaten
    A pack of cards.
    What is bought by the yard ang worn by the foot
    A carpet
