A bunch of loose ends to help you (Another hint of greater magnitude)

The answer is staring you in the face. Water you going to do about it? It appears you are going in circles... why don't you read the headline? (4 ends, 4 parts)

It is

Surface

Through the web and morning view

Through the web = surf + morning view = face (you look in a mirror in the morning to get ready for work etc.)

Break from rise, it's perpendicular too

Waves can break and rise from the surface of the ocean, perpendicular to the surface

It can be rough or go on forever

A surface can be rough (like the surface of the sea), or so smooth it appears to go on forever (i.e. to the horizon in the case of the sea)

Let's finish this rhyme by thinking about leather

Leather is an example of a surface

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ Well I wish I still had the bounty to give. No the answer is not this however your answer practically echoes the intended one! You've got the common phrase hint correct. You've got a 2nd line interpretation which is almost spot on (applied to different idea). Carefully reconsider the 3rd line. The last line doesn't need to rhyme with anything but the line before it $\endgroup$ – Adam Jan 29 at 21:00

My guess is that

each line of the riddle yields one letter of a word.

Through the web and morning view.

"the web" might suggest W as in WWW?

Break from rise, it's perpendicular too.

Maybe the letter I, which is made up of a "perpendicular" line, and "rise" sounds like "eyes"/"I"s.

It can be rough or go on forever.

Rough Cs or seas, which can look like they go on forever.

Lets finish this rhyme by thinking about leather!

Dunno about this, but given the other letters it seems like ...

the final answer should be

WICK.

The subject is

TIME

  • Through the web and morning view.

    You could estimate the time at your place when you have a morning view or by simply looking it up the web(internet).

  • Break from rise, it's perpendicular too.

    The approx time of sunrise is around 6 in the morning. Which is when the hour and minute hand of the clock form one straight line, in other words, are perpendicular to the general horizontal plane.

  • It can be rough or go on forever.

    Times can be rough in life in different situations of struggles and hardships. And regardless of the world, time goes on forever(Time and tide wait for none after all).

  • Lets finish this rhyme by thinking about leather!

    What tells you the time after all? It's a simple device called a watch. Which most commonly is a dial with leather straps. So, if you think of time, have it always by you strapped in leather onto your wrist.

    $\begingroup$ Great answer! The reasoning of line 2 is a bit out-there and this isn't the intended answer but it is a really good fit to this riddle.

With all those hints, large and small, I believe the answer is:

FEATHER

Through the web and morning view.

Through-the sounds like feather

Break from rise, it's perpendicular too.

rise: stalk of feather, it breaks into a lot of "hairs". Perpendicular: perhaps referring to the angle between hairs and stalk?

It can be rough or go on forever.

rough? forever: there are some large feathers that may go on and on if you touch it.

Lets finish this rhyme by thinking about leather!

1) they are both materials. 2) they rhyme!


HINTS

Hint 1

Use the hidden line to your advantage

Hint 2

Forever - |1| For all future time; for always. |2| Continually. https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/forever

Let me know that forever doesn't necessarily mean never-stopping

Large hint 1

Large hint 2

?? Light as a feather?

Massive hint

Portmanteau,imagery,description,example

refers to each of the four lines: great hint!

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ You are very close. There is something special about the first four hints. You've understood hint 2 and the massive hint correctly. Your line 1 interpretation is too cryptic and doesn't include the whole line. Line 3 makes more sense when you have the answer.

It appears that the subject is

Through the web and morning view.

Heather is thick and bushy, and sort of web-like.

Break from rise, it’s perpendicular too.

Heather rises from its ashes- after burning, new plants arise.

It can be rough or go on forever.

Heather is rough and stretches over large tracts of moorland easily.

Piggybacking off of Rand al'Thor's answer, I think I can add the last line's clue

Through the web and morning view.

The letter W

Break from rise, it's perpendicular too.

The letter I

It can be rough or go on forever.

The letter C

As Rand al'Thor pointed out, it looks like the last line should signify a

K. Since it's obvious, the letter isn't actually found here, and the leather references John Wick and his brown leather jacket.

As an aside, did I correctly form the possessive of "Rand al'Thor" back at the beginning?

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ This riddle doesn't require any knowledge of any franchise to be solved. Ask yourself why would I be thinking about leather (without any reference to external works).

My guess is that it's

A Current

Through the web and morning view.

The web could mean the internet and one can see currents on their computer. People with beach houses may see currents when they look into the ocean.

Break from rise, it's perpendicular too.

When waves break near the shoreline, a rip current forms perpendicular to the shoreline.

It can be rough or go on forever.

Rip currents are very rough and ocean currents move water forever.

Lets finish this rhyme by thinking about leather!

I haven't figured out how this relates to currents.

Could it be

LIGHT?

Through the web and morning view.

You might see sunlight through a spider's web in a morning view (or dew).

Break from rise, it's perpendicular too.

Daybreak from sunrise, bringing light back to the world. Light is formed of electromagnetic waves which oscillate perpendicularly.

It can be rough or go on forever.

I don't know about rough, but a ray of light can in theory go on forever.

Lets finish this rhyme by thinking about leather!

A light leather jacket? Light leather? (I Googled that last one.)

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ Hah, getting use out of my physics knowledge! It would be strange to say that light is rough and trying to relate it to leather in this way but this is a creative approach! You are getting closer. Use hint 1 and try to incorporate the last line as it is very important $\endgroup$ – Adam Jan 23 at 18:09

With all those hints, large and small, I believe the answer is:

WEATHER (great thanks to @KradCigol in comments of my prev answer)

Through the web and morning view.

web: you can search the web for the weather;
morning view: you can see the weather by looking up the sky in the morning

Break from rise, it's perpendicular too.

break from rise: referring to the sun rising from the east?
perpendicular: to the horizon, or another case: rain usually falls vertically? (Not so true)

It can be rough or go on forever.

rough: sometimes the weather is bad, i.e. rough
forever: a long period of rain seems to be going on forever, or weather never stops, does it?

Lets finish this rhyme by thinking about leather!

leather rhymes with leather (PS: what is the important bit?)


HINTS

Hint 1

Use the hidden line to your advantage

refers to line 4, 'tis a nice one:) "hidden line" --> hide the 'l' from "leather", "eather" remains --> sounds like "weather"

Hint 2

Forever - |1| For all future time; for always. |2| Continually. https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/forever

Refers to line 3, lets me know that forever doesn't necessarily mean never-stopping

Large hint 1

Refers to line 1, but why?

Large hint 2

Refers to line 2, the rain bit

The subject is

TIME

  • Through the web and morning view.

    We guess the Time by the shadow of some object caused by the sun. Also, can look the internet or web of watches(At this era there are more watches than ever before).

  • Break from the rise, it's perpendicular too.

    As soon as the rise of sun ends or breaks, the sun makes 90 degrees angle with the horizon (The hidden line).

  • It can be rough or go on forever.

    Sometimes you are happy sometimes sad. Sometimes very difficult to pass the time. everyone gets a rough situation. The quote suits both the situation of happiness and sadness. "This time will pass". This quote will be forever true.

  • Let's finish this rhyme by thinking about leather!

    Think about leather or a chain or a rubber strap. The watch suits all.
