In the meantime: Riddles!

While you wait for me to stop procrastinating write your poems, here are some riddles to keep you busy! If you are the first to solve, there may even be a prize!



Vanguard of my family, Crowded by my enemy

Known for equanimity, Home to anemone


Chosen to complete my task

Trained in service while at home

To serve my liege is all I ask

Soon I’ll be allowed to roam

And join my sisters in their quest

Learn to dance the aged routine

Seek and find gold without rest

And offer treasure to my Queen.

Note: Using google is cheating, but collaborating with a friend is teamwork!

I would consider myself much like Harriet Smith from "Emma" when it comes to riddles.

I: Either a clown fish or the ocean

And I have no clue as to the second. I'm much better with dhorter riddles. I could be completely wrong with the first, though. =P

Don't worry, I'm horrid at riddles, but was pleasantly surprised to discover I could write them!

Keep your guesses coming :)

If any of you were wondering. The answer to I is BAY. II is Bee.
