Riddles in rhyme

Read the verses and guess the words; many are homonyms or homophones

1. With 'shore' i'm just

a-rolling by;

The thirdly letter;

My eyes espy.

2. With 'down,' it's a stream

Of heavy, hard rain;

To serve from a pitcher;

Humble, no gain.

3. With 'nic' at the end

I'm a meal shared with ants;

Alone, I'm to gather

The blooms off my plants.

4. A word for ascend;

The queen of all flowers;

The color of glasses

That never see showers.

5. I'm jumpy and nervous;

I'm a verb's sense of time;

I'm covering the campers;

With 'sense' we're a rhyme.

6. A wall I can be,

Cast out to sea;

A classmate or teammate;

To look narrowly.

7. It's all you perceive

That seems to be;

A spool for fishing;

A dance carefree.

8. With 'cu' I'm a veggie,

A friend of tomato;

With 'en' I'm a bother,

A real leaden weight-o.

9. I chatter away

When 'pie's' in my name;

With 'net' I call pull you,

No force can refrain.

10. With 'brain' I can mean

That a 'light' has gone on;

At sea I will rumble

'Til boats are all gone.

11. I am not a pillow,

Though we rhyme so well;

I'm more apt to weep

If I'm feeling well.
