riddle
Of no use to one
Yet absolute bliss to two.
The small boy gets it for nothing.
The young man has to lie for it.
The old man has to buy it.
The baby's right,
The lover's privilege,
The hypocrite's mask.
To the young girl, faith;
To the married woman, hope;
To the old maid, charity.

Ends life, kills laughter.

Lined with a skin as soft as silk,
Within a fountain crystal-clear,
A golden apple doth appear.

Yet thieves break in and steal the gold,
