These riddles are from the Exeter book.

1.

"The wave, over the wave, a weird thing I saw,
through-wrought, and wonderfully ornate:
a wonder on a wave- water became bone."

2.

"I heard of a wonder, of words moth-eaten;
that is a strange thing, I thought, weird
that a man's song be swallowed by a worm,
his binded sentences, his bedside stand-by
rustled in the night- and the robber-guest
not one whit the wiser for the words he had
mumbled."

1.

A civilian that is elegantly beautiful, sooner or later, that civilian will turn to bones and ashes.

2.

Those who act witty are not truly witty. Those who are true to themselves are the ones that are witty.

I heard that there were no true answers to these riddles, so it leaves it us with our own interpretations. I think the first one is Ice.

Probably how bone is hard- like ice. Noting how the person claimed that they saw it from the waves, and on the waves. Something ornate, in ways beautiful like ice.
