    I can soar through the air like a bird with a tail.

    Lined with skin as soft as silk,

    Yet thieves break in and steal the gold.

    What is it?

    5 in the middle is seen,

  4. Rough and gray as rock,
    I'm plain as plain can be.
    But hidden deep inside there's great beauty in me.
    What am I?

  5. I tower over the man-made plain;
    My peaks scrape the heavens.
    I have many brothers; in fact,
    We may be as many as a hundred and seven.

    We're as ancient as the oldest trees,
    But not older than the hills.
    We've been studied for centuries now,
    But with mystery we're still filled.
