Grandma Clark’s Riddles

There is a thing that nothing is
But yet it has a name
It will hit, skip, and nimble tip
And be as spry as you or I
At any game

There was a lady queen
Sat in a garden green
The first day of her life
She was maid and married wife
And died before she was born

In times of old the scriptures do record
There was one lived who never did offend the Lord
The words he spake sin never did commit
Yet in Christ's Kingdom he shall never sit

Word of one syllable, easy and short
Spelled backward and forward the same
It expresses the sentiment warm from the heart
And to beauty lays principal claim
