Riddle of the day


One for a glorious golden grave
Two for a terrible torch of tin
Three for a hundred hollow horses
Four for a knight with a spur of speargrass
Five for a fish with fortunate fins
Eight for a frog with eyes like marbles
Ten for a tower of turbulent toast

What are six, seven & nine?

Bravo, Anon!
