A Riddle

Rating: 5.0

There is one that has a head without an eye,
And there's one that has an eye without a head.
You may find the answer if you try;
And when all is said,
Half the answer hangs upon a thread.

Half the answer that 'hangs upon a thread' is of course a needle, and the other half still remains a riddle! :)
