Riddle me

Just after thinking of Jesus' "riddling sentence," and just before reciting his riddle of the fox, Stephen recalls the opening lines of a familiar riddle: "Riddle me, riddle me, randy ro. / My father gave me seeds to sow." He does not quote the rest, but it was a familiar riddle whose answer was "writing a letter."
