    oh goody-can't do these but still...
    I was tall when young,
    but short now old,
    my youth was bright,
    But my age is a shroud of darkness.
    (very easy and the oldest one around but still...we needed to start somewhere.)

    and another..

    Until I am measured
    I am not known,
    Yet how you miss me
    When I have flown.

    do you want the answers in spoilers or do you want me to answer later?

    Yup well done!- I like the time on..simple yet effective.
    and another...
    I never was,
    am always to be,
    No one ever saw me,
    nor ever will And yet I am the confidence of all
    To live and breathe on this terrestrial ball.


    another of my favorites.
    enjoy

    And the answer is..... *drum roll*

    I'm not to good at riddles either but this is my favourite-

    Only one colour, but not one size,
    Stuck at the bottom, yet easily flies,
    Present in sun, but not in rain,
    Doing no harm, and feeling no pain,

    i think the answer is a shadow.

    one colour is black. the closer to the sun, the bigger it gets. rain clouds hide it and it can't feel anything or hurt anyone. is that right?

    Ok I've got one

    I come in different shapes and sizes. Part of me are curves, others are straight. You can put me anywhere you like, but there is only one right place for me.
    What am I?

    Alive without breath,
    As cold as death,
    Never thirsty,
    Ever drinking,
    Clad in mail,
    Never clinking,
    Drowns on dry land,
    Thinks an island,
    Is a mountain,
    Thinks a fountain,
    Is a puff of air.

    Now this one IS easy-even I got it first time-and yes you were all right on my previous ones.WELL DONE!

    That one's from the Hobbit isn't it. The answer is a fish.
