    Find me in both sea and earth.
    I am proud to stand for honest worth.
    When joy and grief reach overflow
    My taste is one you surely know.
    Not to give too much away,
    Let’s meet for a meal
    Whenever you say.
    The house was quiet and the world was calm.
    The reader became the book; and summer night

    Was like the conscious being of the book.
    The house was quiet and the world was calm.

    I think if I've not erred to fault
    My anxious brain did not hear halt
    And deep within it's humid vault
    Up comes the answer...surely salt!

    I'm thinking I need to raise the curtain a bit, so I'll highlight the word or words that are the pertinent clue bits. If that doesn't do it for you I'll retire back to my cave to ponder immortality.

    If you're Russian to jump on a train
    And you wear red akin to a flame
    And you head for a seat
    Thinking you can't be beat
    You're so souped up, you're actually vain

    I think I've gone around the block with this one, stretching credulity. Still perhaps someone will grasp may wavelength... Let's see...

    Cheers, Bob

    The ocean's my forever bed
    I'm brownish green, but dead I'm red
    I keep things clean by what I'm fed
    And as I grow, so does the dread
    I use my tail more than my head
    And with that clue, enough is said

    Does nobody want to play?

    Cheers, Bob

    So it appears that either nobody cares...or you need more help, so optimistically, I'll assume the latter...

    So for clues, seems you need a few more
    So I'll try here to open that door
    But it's all in your grasp
    Not too far from the hasp
    Please guess this so I'm not a bore...

    The riddles are backing up waiting for answers in rhyme... Here's another...do the time!

    As you enter, you give me a hand
    As you leave, I'm still part of the plan
    Though I shoot from the hip
    And help you get a grip
    Yet I'm taken for granted, more than...

    Cheers, Bob

    Can't believe you're all making me wait
    For the answer where I've left much bait
    "yes" it's on every door
    You cannot need much more
    You could even find one on the gate

    His soft long white beard has no stickle
    And apparently he's fond of a cycle
    He's an end of days bloke
    But his face spawns no joke
    Where his heart should be, lurks an ice-cycle

    HOPE ALL THE POETS HERE HAVE A WONDERFUL 2017

    I'm fine finding words for a song,
    But I really do hate being wrong.
    Yet it's funny you bring this up still
    As I'm quite familiar with Knob Hill.
    i see you,
    fellow denizen of the net,
    typing, reading

    So, good job 'newcomer', if that is, by Knob Hill you are actually referring to door knob... I'm guessing you are... So, if you are still in the mood, there's one more riddle to solve. Care to take another turn at bat?

    What’s this? A door with no way in,
    no knob, no knocker, buzzer, bell?
    Oh, well.
    We’ll stand outside and shout, I guess
    knock and pound and...
    No answer. Wait!
    Is this the right address?

    Nobody up yet to the plate?
    How long must a 'riddler' wait?
    Is the date not a clue?
    What a solver must do?
    When this puzzle first showed up as bait

    What do you call the new-year kid
    when he's all grown up in December?
    Whatever he is, January's babe
    wears a sash of resolutions
    you never remember.

    Father Time, is the rhyme, as you've shown
    And I remember every resolution, and the exact moment I break them...

    It's the Achilles Heel of most men
    Clouds their thinking, of when to say "when".
    For directions, won't ask
    Over reach for a task
    It weighs nothing, yet authors upends...

    It can't sit in a jar on the shelf
    It can't be counted up with one's wealth
    It's a factor of brain
    Causing many much pain
    Can't control it till one knows one's self

    Type A's seem to have it the worst
    And many don't view it a curse
    While it often fuels drive
    Puts the life into live
    With several it leads them to burst


    Any solvers out their? Still nothing? I'm trying to give this thread CPR but apparently I'm an army of one... It's ok...I can wait.

    So my high minded Lazarus Goal
    For this thread doesn't seem to burn coal
    Can't attract any posts
    All past writers are ghosts
    Guess I've failed at this task on the whole

    Unless...unless...unless...someone still wants to take a stab at this riddle clue?

    So the weather outside fairly sucks
    And I've nothing at hand to earn bucks
    So I'll play yet once more
    As I beg and implore
    For some posters to back up the trucks

    Let your wit and unpuzzling brains sniff
    At my previous puzzle please whiff
    Is there no writer who
    Will solve from my clue
    For my day that could make a big dif
