The Riddles of Gollum

In
J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit, the Gollum presented Bilbo with a set of
riddles. Can you solve them?

The thing all things devours; Birds, beasts, trees, flowers; Gnaws
Iron, bites steel; Grinds hard stones to meal; Slays King, ruins town,
and beats high mountain down.

Alive without breath, as cold as death; Never thirsty, ever drinking,
all in mail never clinking.

It cannot be seen, it cannot be felt. Cannot be heard, cannot
be smelt. It lies behind stars and under hills, and empty holes it fills.
It comes first and follows after. Ends life, kills laughter.

A box without hinges, key or lid. Yet golden treasure inside is
hid.
