Well, great answers everyone.  I never realized just how broad the answer could be.  The one I was thinking of was "N.M.E." which if spoken out loud gets "Enemy."

Okay, going back to the other way I was doing this:

An untiring servant it is,
Carrying loads across muddy earth.
But one thing that cannot be forced,
Is a return to the place of its birth.

With sharp edged wit,
And pointed poise,
It can settle disputes,
Without a noise.

Power enough to smash ships and crush roofs.
Yet it still must fear the sun.

#3 Was answered the way that it is in the book.  However, 1 and 2 are only close but not quite there.

Both are answered correctly!

Okay now:

1. The strongest chains will not bind it.
Ditch and rampart will not slow it down.
A thousand soldiers cannot beat it,
It can knock down trees with a single push.

2. Brothers make it rain,
Kingdom rivers crimson pain.

3. Today he is there to trip you up.
And he will torture you tomorrow.
Yet he is also there to ease the pain,
When you are lost in grief and sorrow.

If you found those THAT easy, then these next ones will be done in no time:

1. It can pierce the best armor,
And make swords crumble with a rub.
Yet for all its power,
It can't harm a club.

2. With this one thing alone,
You will have defeated even the strongest foe.

3. He got it in the woods and brought it home in his hand
because he couldn't find it.
The more he looked for it the more he felt it.
When he finally found it he threw it away.

I just wonder, are those riddles taken from Baldur's Gate?
I feel its kind of unfair for me to answer, because I've guessed them before ;).

No they're not from Baldur's Gate.  They're from
