    I've left it for them on a whiteboard in a meeting room.

    Q: What am I?

    My first is in comrade, but not in friend
    My second's a loop, a line with no end
    My third and my fourth are like birds in the air
    My fifth is a horseshoe, good luck it brings there
    My sixth is in nurture and also in nation
    My seventh appears three times in inspiration
    My eight and my ninth are how to say thank you
    Unravel this riddle to answer the Q

    Love and Hove don't rhyme

    My first is in poet, but never in poem
    My second’s in haiku and and also in haibun,
    My third’s in […] and also in elegy
    My fourth is in ballad and also bardolatry
    My fifth is in epilogue and epigram
    My sixth is in accent and in anagram
    My seventh’s in rhyme but never in slang,
    Solve this riddle to find out who I am.

    First think of a creature named after a place
    A novelised creature, with a peculiar face
    Next, turn your attention to a fire in a grate
    Of the warmth and the comfort that this thing can create
    Let us not forget also, the land of the 'net
    An icon that strives to cause grief and upset
    And finally, illumination, in the form of a thin shaft of light
    Could be just one way of describing this action, so bright
    Now ponder these clues, and ponder them well
    String them together, and what do they spell?
