I'll start with an easy one!
Witty and smart, incredibly sly.
Like the rest of my brethren, I am quite shy.
Not fire or water or even lightning,
No snowflake or leaf blade, nor even a wing.
To grow, my cousins, they need a stone,
for what I can do with experience alone.
They're known for their tales and their tails
But only with one, I do just as well.
In the dim light of dusk, it's when I eat my fill,
not yet part of darkness, but one day I will.
