OER #2: This Is My House
posted by 21eyes - April 26 2011 10:15:05 AM
My house is quiet, I am not loud;
But for us god fashioned our fate together.
I am the swifter, at times the stronger,
My house is more enduring, longer to last.
At times I rest; my dwelling still runs;
Within it I lodge as long as I live.
Should we two be severed, my death is sure.

no hearts beat, so it would be loud

A turtle?

close, they both live in the same area

A tortoise?

no, I meant they both live in water

ooops, the previous fact is a big hint

I thought of an oyster when I read your riddle... But the line "At times I rest; my dwelling still runs" didn't quite fit... Could also be a clam. Or any water creature with a shell or something. What's the answer?

its a [hide]fish[/hide]

If you want to know why here it is [hide]because the shells don't run while they rest while a river does, and no turtle or clam could be faster or stronger than its shell, when people put their head under water they don't hear much, fish aren't loud, and they die when out of water[/hide]
