Enigmatic Riddles and Rhymes #4

This quote is from The Magician’s Nephew by C.S. Lewis. I choose this quote because it’s kind of a hybrid between a riddle and a rhyme. The last words of each verse rhyme, but it also appears to be a riddle in the sense that the verses are daring you to “strike the bell and bide the danger.”

“Make your choice, adventurous Stranger,
Strike the bell and bide the danger,
Or wonder, till it drives you mad,
What would have followed if you had.”
– C.S. Lewis, The Magician’s Nephew
