    Riddle Poems

    A while back, I had fun writing riddle poems about commonplace objects. Here is one to solve or as a prompt.

    I may wear lace, brocade or gingham,
    or shudder in my own bare frame.
    In mansion or in hovel,
    look to me for weather’s moods,
    time’s shifts from bright to dark.

    My outlook changes constantly,
    never twice the same.
    What you see this moment
    will not appear again.

    If need be, my single eyelid
    will hide you from the curious
    or the moon’s intrusive stare.
