The Hobbit: Riddles in the Dark Between Gollum and Bilbo

If you have seen the movie Hobbit, you must have enjoyed the part where Gollum and Bilbo throw riddles at each other.

Here are some of the riddles.

Alive without breath,
As cold as death;
Never thirsty, ever drinking,
All in mail never clinking.

Voiceless it cries,
Wingless flutters,
Toothless bites,
Mouthless mutters.

A box without hinges, key, or lid,
Yet golden treasure inside is hid.

What has roots as nobody sees,
Is taller than trees.
Up, up, up it goes,
And yet never grows?
