Riddle 32 Our world is lovely in different ways. Hung with beauty and works of hand. I saw a strange machine, made For motion, slide against the sand, Shrieking as it went.

Its work is useful, and welcome, for it loads 10 Its belly with food, and brings abundance To men, to poor and to rich, paying Its tribute year after year. Solve This riddle, if you can, and unravel its name.

Riddle 27 I saw a wonderful creature carrying Light plunder between its horns. Curved lamp of the air, cunningly formed, It fetched home its bounty from the day's raid And plotted to build in its castle if it could 5 A night-chamber brightly adorned. Then over the east wall came another creature Well known to earth-dwellers. Wonderful as well, It seized back its bounty and sent the plunderer home Like an unwilling wanderer. The wretch went west,10 Moved morosely and murderously on. Dust rose to the heavens, dew fell on earth- Night moved on. Afterwards no one In the world knew where the wanderer had gone.
