A mile from end to end, yet as close to as a friend. A precious commodity, freely given. Seen on the dead and on the living. Found on the rich, poor, short and tall, but shared among children most of all.
Sleeping during the day, I hide away. Watchful through the night, I open at dawn's light. But only for the briefest time, do I shine. And then I hide away. And sleep through the day.
What is it that has four legs, one head, and a foot?
A seed am I, three letters make my name. Take away two and I still sound the same.
Come up and let us go. Go down and here we stay
I roam through the lands hoping to rescue my love. I search high and low and will stomp on you if you get in my way!
