Riddle #95

By Jane Austen

Question: When my first is a task to a young girl of spirit,
And my second confines her to finish the piece,
How hard is her fate! But how great is her merit
If by taking my whole she effects her release!

Great website with great riddles, thanks for producing them all and keep it up!\n\nJust a question, could you perhaps add pictures or something with your questions? It makes it a little bit easier to read and relate, think you will attract more viewers that way. For example on this site they do it: http://www.hardcoreriddles.com/riddles/hard-riddles-with-answers/
