  2. # 1 In the spring I'm gay in my disparate garments; in the summer I wear more clothes; when the cold increases, my clothes decrease; and in winter I am practically naked
  3. # 2 I'm alive, but I'm not breathing; I am cold in life as in death; I am never thirsty, but I always drink
  4. # 3 The one that's always old and sometimes new; never sad, sometimes blue; never empty, but sometimes full; never pushes, always pulls
  5. # 4 The one that's big, but never grows; it has roots that cannot be seen; and it is taller than the trees
  6. # 5 In the night they arrive without being caught, and once the day comes they disperse without being stolen
  7. # 6 The one who can bring the dead back to life; make you cry, make you laugh, rejuvenate; it is born in an instant, but it lasts a lifetime
  8. # 7 This thing devours everything: birds, beasts, trees, flowers; chews iron, bites into steel, grinds rocks into meals; kills sovereigns, destroys cities; and brings down very high mountains
  9. # 8 As small as your thumb, I'm the light in the air. You may hear me before you see me, but trust me I'm there
  10. # 9 Never resting, never stationary; it moves silently from valley to valley; does not walk, run or trot; everything is fresh where it is not
  11. # 10 I make my burrow out of threads and get rid of my prey with a poisonous bite
  12. # 11 The one who can run, but never walks; he has a mouth but never speaks; he has a head but he never sobs, he has a bed, but he never sleeps
  13. # 12 Some try to hide it, others to cheat; but time will show, we will always meet. Try to guess my name, I promise you will know when I come to claim you
