    Jonathan Swift Riddle

    Did you know Jonathan Swift was a bit of a riddler? This riddle is one of his:

    We are all very little creatures;
    all of us have different features.
    One of us in glass is set;
    One of us you’ll find in jet.
    Another you may see in tin,
    And a fourth is boxed within.
    If the fifth you should pursue,
    It can never fly from you.
    What are we?
    A riddle a day keeps boredom at bay!

    We are vowels!

    "in glass is set" = a

    "find in jet" = e

    "see in tin" = i

    "boxed within" = o

    "should pursue" = u
