I'm looking for a riddle to put on my wedding invitation card. Ideally it's short (3 lines max) and not english-specific, as my guests are arabic - speakers. Any suggestions?
We are a symbol of unity, of love that's bloomed
Up the aisle, through the room
There's two of us, but we're not bride or groom
What am I?
To which the answer would be
A wedding ring
Unites two people who have fallen in love
Brought up the aisle as everyone watches the ceremony
Two rings, one for bride one for groom, yet they aren't either
To save you the trouble here it is in arabic:
نحن رمزا للوحدة، من الحب الذي هو أزهرت
حتى في الممر، من خلال غرفة
هناك اثنين منا، لكننا لا العروس أو العريس
Quite nice as it rhymes as well as being related to a wedding, and is 3 lines long (excluding the 'What am I?')
This is an adaptation of a riddle I discovered online here:
True love's quest will end with me
Yet I am crafted endlessly
I'm seen on hands and feet and heads
And every hour my name is said
What am I?
I am a ring.
Wedding rings are used to symbolize and finalize marriage;
Yet a ring has no end in its shape;
They are worn on toes, fingers, and ears (as well as other places on the face and body);
And every hour, the church bell rings to indicate the time.
