the Persian Princess in Turandot

IMG_6891

3  Riddles from this Italian opera by Puccini:

1st, What is born each night and dies each dawn?

2nd, What flickers red and warm like a flame, but is not fire?

3rd, What is ice which gives you fire and which your fire freezes still more?

 

My dear, what is the ice that makes you burn?
