3 Riddles

25
Found 8th May 2008
1) I have four spheres
but I am not round
I am in a prison of water
but I do not drown
What am I?


2) In marble walls as white as milk,
Lined with a skin as soft as silk,
Within a fountain crystal clear,
A golden apple doth appear.
No doors there are to this stronghold,
Yet thieves break in and steal the gold.


3) When first the marriage knot was tyd
Between my wife and me,
My age was to that of my bride
As three times three to three
But now when ten and half ten years,
We man and wife have been,
Her age to mine exactly bears,
As eight is to sixteen;
Now tell, I pray, from what Ive said,
What were our ages when we wed?

number 1 is a BRAIN

...yawn, challenge me

You would need to have some brain to answer the first one.

:thumbsup:

I know I'm a time-waster, but I really couldn't be bothered putting my mind to number three. Hopefully somebody else will though!

They been married 15 years. The wifes age is now half her husbands age. 15 years ago her age was a third of her husbands. Only solution is 15 and 45?
