السلام عليكم

Here is a new game...

Instructions: Work out the riddle, write the answer in Arabic.

Riddle 1: 'A time when they're green'

A time when they're green, a time when they're brown,
But both of these times - cause me to frown.
But just in between, for a very short little while,
They're perfect and yellow, and cause me to smile!


What am I talking about here?

Answer: _ _ _

Riddle 2: With the blow of wind she flares up,
And dies as soon as she drinks water;
She’s pretty, though not a woman, she’s feminine.
