    Still incorrect. Not ice and not a story. This one turned out to be harder than I thought.

    I can be half
    I can be whole
    Cold and hard
    Oft left untold

    Hint below:



    Think of it this way: half _____, whole _____, cold,hard ______. What word completes all three of these phrases.

    Here's one:

    You feed it, it lives,
    You give it something to drink, it dies.

    Wahoo!:D

    OK, that means I've got to think of another one:

    I am sometimes lost, but easily caught again.
    I can be caught, but never held for long,
    for all who hold me willingly let me go.
