I wear a small hat upon my head,
but I can’t take it off.
I fall to the ground and grow up again.
I have a sleek coat of pale brown.
I am the beginning of a story and the end of one, too.
I used to sit in a lofty perch
but I have flown away.
I hold life inside of me but I am not alive.
I am a treasure chest with no keyhole.
Only one person knows how to open me.
What am I?*
*Comment your guess. I will post the answer next week in Weekly Announcements. Good luck!
