New riddles! :) Five different ones here for you folk to have a crack at:

1.
I am unwelcome at your door,
My brothers chase me on the moor.
And yet I am a guest most kind;
For when I leave I brush behind.


2.
I may have but a foolish brain,
And lose it before April's rain,
But I'll warm yours, for it is said,
I'll leap and sit atop your head


3.
I stared from the coins in Pericles' hand,
I who rules by the moon, and all things understand.
My kin gather rarely, but when we do,
We'll sit in a higher house than you.


4.
My name's said when you lift a load,
To carry it along the road,
And though you fear me, run, and hide
You'll rest tonight with me at your side.


5.
You never see me, but if you might,
You'll see my face in black and white.
And if there's something I forget,
I'll just head home, for there I'm set.

No idea. I suck at riddles.
I'd be more apathetic if I weren't so lethargic.

I do find I'm better at writing them than solving them!

I think I've got 2, 4 and 5 - all puns or other plays on words, if I'm not mistaken. I suspect 1 and 3 are similar, but I haven't got them worked out yet. My answers so far in spoilers:

I'm not sure people both run away from Jesus and sleep next to him on a regular basis?

Still chewing over 1, 4 and 5, with little effect so far.

Pent: if Jesus is everywhere you can't hide from him.

Glau: That is correct :) Line 1 is kind of a giveaway if you know the fact.

Anyway, just to clarify 110%, the answer to number four is NOT "Jesus".

Yup, you got me. Still not the answer though.
