Riddle:

I'm by nature solitary, scarred by spear and wounded by sword, weary of battle. I frequently see the face of war, and fight hateful enemies; yet I hold no hope of help being brought to me in the battle, before I'm eventually done to death. In the stronghold of the city sharp-edged swords, skilfully forged in the flame by smiths, bite deeply into me. I can but await a more fearsome encounter; it is not for me to discover in the city any of those doctors who heal grievous wounds with roots and herbs. The scars from sword wounds gape wider and wider; death blows are dealt to me by day and by night.

What am I?

Answer:

A shield.

Riddle:

I herald the darkness which descends on all creatures; You will know my approach by moans and wracked features. I visit the hippo, hyena, and horse, But never go near snails and spiders, of course. I would circle the globe, leaping one to the other, Should all the world's people ever clasp hands together.

What am I?

Answer:

I am a Yawn.

“What am I?” and the similar “Who am I Riddles?” or “What is it Riddles?” all have a very similar form. Many are rhymes and sound like limericks. They usually give multiple clues that leads you to an specific answer. If you get stuck on one, clear your head and try and look at it from an completely different angle.
