I'm fairly new to Sleuth and I thought I might share a little hobby of mine with you all. Here's something for that sad moment when the mysteries of the day are all done.
Thousands lay up gold within this house,
but no man made it.
Spears past counting guard this house,
but no man wards it.
What is it?

' Heres some more riddles I found, good luck!
1.I run, though I have no legs to be seen. I possess no heat, yet I do have steam. I have no voice to let words out, but from far away you can still hear me shout. What am I?
2.You must keep this thing, its loss will affect your brothers. For once yours is lost, it will soon be lost by others.
3.Inside a burning house, this thing is best to make. And best to make it quickly, before the fire's too much to take!
4.With sharp edged wit and pointed poise, it can settle disputes without making a noise. What is it?
5.What is it that is deaf, dumb and blind and always tells the truth?
6.When I'm used, I'm useless, once offered, soon rejected. In desperation oft expressed, the intended not protected. What am I?
