    When strolling through a tract of wheat
    I pick’d up something good to eat,
    ‘Twas neither fish, flesh, fowl, or bone;
    I kept it till it ran alone,
    ‘Twas a honeycomb.

    I think the answer is wheat or grains of wheat. The “I” in this riddle is a combine, I think.

    maybe it was some food for thought, like an idea…..

    Jason- sorry about that, was late in getting around to post that your answer- ‘egg’, is the one listed in the riddle book (over 100+ years old!)


    coupland- like your answer “honeycomb” too, seems reasonable.
