'In an oral tradition true riddles seem to offer a playful challenge to the people's conventional views of the world.  They do this by describing the familiar in words and terms that make it sound magical and mysterious.  Unlike other forms of the riddle, true riddles aim not to trick or puzzle but to offer a fresh view of the world.  To me they are poems - peoples' poetry.' - Pat Fairon
