What is it that leaps and runs and has no feet?
Often talked of, never seen. Ever coming, never been. Daily looked for, never here. Still approaching, coming near. Thousands for its visit wait, but alas for their fate. Tho' they expect me to appear, they will never find me here. What am I?
I am sometimes strong and sometimes weak, but I am nobody's fool. For there is no language that I cannot speak, though I never went to school. What am I?
