Louis XIV Asks Riddles IV

Esteemed Readers,

midsummer time calls for some intellectual entertainment. So, His Majesty offers you another 17th century riddle…rather romantic and so much allegoric! Good luck!

Without consuming hearts we make them burn. We are torches and mirrors of the soul, whose secret thoughts are expressed though our flames. And in our silence we are heard.

The Riddle Solution made by the author:

Where the brightest torches one can behold? Who are these famous authors of pleasures & pains? Who are suns & fountains able to melt fires & waters?

    when these window shades open
    they reveal what’s inside
    through progressive lenses 🙂

  3. Goodness me, dew-tears, I don’t know how I got to coal. I am not good at riddles, clearly.
