    Alright, I made something up. If you don't get it solved, there's tons of verses that are too obvious to put into the first one, so they may get added later.
    _______________

    My presence is subtle, yet I'm always here.
    Some people adore me, some shiver in fear.

    Outshone by my brother, who is worshipped by all,
    I quietly rise later, when he finally must fall.

    I've influenced stories from the very first year.
    For when men did arise, I was already here.

    Now you guess who I am, though I it may be quite hard.
    The next poem is yours, as your promised reward.

    ________________
    Good Luck! :)


    EDIT!
    How about we all put our answers in spoilers? Sounds like a normal thing to do on this kind of games.

    IS IT EVOLUTION??

    I like the spoilers idea. We'll just have to trust any guesses are genuine.

    I thought you meant put the answer to your riddle in a spoiler in your post with the riddle...

    I have always thought of the sun as female, but ohh well. I would have said Moon as well.

    I dunno, yo. It seems to me that people choose whatever suits them.

    Sorry about the misunderstanding, I was talking about the answers being spoilers. Because when I read the last riddle, I clicked on "new posts" and was taken to the answers before I saw the riddle itself. I guess it's a better experience if we let everyone guess on their own.

    @Cyril, wrong. I really wouldn't want to make a politically/religiously inspired poem in a graphics forum tbh ;) Although now that I re-read it I understand that you could mistake it for some other things (death or something similar) I wanted to go for something completely different in the first place.. namely...
    @Sky, a Canadian yes to you! The next is yours!
    @vT, yep I was struggling with the sun's gender for a while, especially since in German the sun has a female article to it. But I thought it would be too easy for you then...

    By the way, I wouldn't have guessed how hard it is to write a poem + riddle in another language! It took me almost half an hour for those few verses :D

    I usually don;t have trouble writing poems, but making t into a riddle and for it all to still make sense is tough. Good job Baum!

    I think its quite entertaining to watch you create and guess on the poem-riddles.

    The sun is masculine in French, now that you mention languages with noun genders.

    What have I got in my pocket?

    Nah, jk that's a question of do you know your LOTR lore xD

    Uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuhm. Dangit. Riddles. Can I pass? D:

    Want a splash of color? Or maybe something darker... Or are you playing, and need a random hand? I can give you all these things, I'm something three in one: It's fun to play this game. Name my names, there's three.

    Nope nope nope.

    I might mean one of three things, but how do you know?
    Context will tell you which way I should go.
