Riddle: A house without the head of head, knitted deep within the trees, a head that lies without its eyes, stitched silently to tease. What am I?
Answer: The correct answer is a louse.
The “head of head” – in terms of letters – is “H”, so House without an “H” is “ouse”. Lies without eyes is a phonetic clue to the letter L. Knit is a homophone for nit, which is a louse egg.
