Before I grow I'm small.
When I'm old I grow tall.
When I die I give a mighty fall.
What am I?
My first is in spell, but not book.
My second is in fright and also shook.
My third is in cauldron, but never in pot.
My fourth is in net and also in knot.
My fifth is in bat, but never in vampire.
My sixth is in coal, but not found in fire.
My seventh is in moon, but not in night.
My first is a term to relate a circumstance present or past;
and those who are much prone to prate,
my second will spout away fast.
My whole, in the days of our youth,
is what we extremely despised;
and though it say nothing but truth,
yet it never need hope to be prized.
I am pinched by grandmas. What am I?See answer
