Thursday Morning Riddle

Thursday, July 17th, 2014

And just give me a minute, and I’m fully swung.

Who am I?

I’m a station you’re changing when less than engrossed;
Found between mainland France and the low English coast;

I’m a serving of wine, or a tall pint of beer;

Thursday, February 6th, 2014

I’m a small brood of chickens; the eggs in a hatch;
I’m to grasp a hold tightly; to greedily snatch;
A third pedal in cars, with a stick shift to match;
And a purse with no handles, but simply a latch.

Who am I?

And items not taken, still there for selection.

I am paying the bill; I’m put down when at war;
I am three in the yard; but in these lines, I’m four.

Who am I?

I’m a process that generates food from a light.
I am useful for plants who would reach a great height.
That is all I can mean, which brings with it a plight.
And so that’s why this riddle was tricky to write.

Who am I?
