Floating Gracefully (Posted on 2006-11-27) Difficulty: 3 of 5
White as snow or a multicolored hue.
Floating around or stuck to one's shoe.
Flying true, or falling slow,
unknown directions that are easily shown.
Silent and light,
and causes no fright.
Just a bit of wind,
and I go flying with a friend.
Alone I am not much,
but with many a soft touch.
Gathered with friends at night,
I may not be heard.
but my host during light,
you will hear, most assured.

is feathers!

 

Nice little early morning riddle >-))))'>

White as snow or a multicolored hue (feathers come in many colours)
Floating around or stuck to one's shoe (pretty clear)
Flying true, or falling slow (flying when on birds, falling slow when alone)
unknown directions that are easily shown (migration of birds??? South for the winter???)
Silent and light (don't make a sound and don't weigh very much)
and causes no fright (???)
Just a bit of wind,
and I go flying with a friend (feathers are easily blown about)
Alone I am not much,
but with many a soft touch.
Gathered with friends at night (feather-filled bedding)
I may not be heard.
but my host during light,
you will hear, most assured (morning chorus)
