Normally here is what I do
Find a riddle on the w/wide web
and post for you
But one of my basic rules have been
Is to generally post a riddle in which I've figured the end

Not going to do that tonight
Call me selfish and that I'm not right.
At this point i do not know
What riddle it is I'm about to sow.

So, give me a break, I'll be right back
And then a riddle I'll give, it will be our task..


hold on...

Here it goes the riddle's answer I do not know
But will be trying to get it right, along with you today and tonight bro's (and sistas too)


'Twas in heaven pronounced, and 'twas muttered in hell,
An echo caught faintly the sound as it fell;
On the confines of earth 'twas permitted to rest,
And the depths of the ocean its presence confessed;
'Twill be found in the sphere when 'tis riven asunder,
Be seen in the lightning and heard in the thunder.
'Twas allotted to man with his earliest breath,
Attends him at birth, and awaits him in death,
Presides o'er his happiness, honor, and health,
Is the prop of his house, and the end of his wealth.
In the heaps of the miser 'tis hoarded with care,
But is sure to be lost on the prodigal heir.
It begins every hope, every wish it must bound,
With the husbandman toils, and with monarchs is crowned.
Without it the soldier, the seamn may roam,
But woe to the wretch who expels it from home!
In the whispers of conscience its voice will be found,
Nor e'en in the whirlwind of passion be drowned.
'Twill not soften the heart; but though deaf be the ear,
It will make it acutely and instantly hear.
Yet in shade let it rest, like a delicate flower,
Ah... breathe on it softly, - it dies in an hour.

I was on the right track, but I gave up the chase. My brother-in-law told me right to my face. I racked my brain, on the couch I was perched. To Google he went and quickly he searched. Knowing now I wish I kept trying.
For him who solves the next ale I'll be buying.

I'm not sure I have time for this riddle now, maybe in the future. Hmm?

with it your ear can hear
and hope can calm your every fear
I think I shall have a beer
And wish you all a happy new year

Clifton and Frogman have given clues maybe answers
This riddle is one of the hardest, even for my dog Prancer
I read a few lines and come up with some words that make sense
But pretty sure it is one word not different words, nor used in past tense
My rhyming and timing are getting worse, this riddle I posted is my dreaded curse
Pretty sure everybody will get it but me, will keep plugging away and soon I will see

Note to self
You're not an elf
Next time you randomly post a riddle you don't know the answer to
Be prepared to be humbled by Riddle Masters, cause Dan, you have no clue.
