A Riddle

There is one that has a head without an eye,
And there's one that has an eye without a head.

The answer is Spider.Am I right?
ধাঁধা ।। ক্রিশ্চিনা রসেটি . . এমন একজন আছে— চোখহীন, শুধু মাথা যার, আবার এমন আছে— মুণ্ডহীন, শুধু এক চোখের সম্ভার। চেষ্টা করলে পেয়ে যাবে: জবাব ধাঁধার; বর্ণনা তামাম করো পুনরায় পড়ে, আধেক উত্তর ঝুলছে: সুতার উপরে। . . #বাঙলায়ন: #রহমানেহেনরী; #Bengalized by #RahmanHenry .
Half the answer that 'hangs upon a thread' is of course a needle, and the other half still remains a riddle! :)

A fun quizzical rhyme
Christina Rossetti is one of my favourites! Eye without a head, hangs upon a thread is a needle. Of course, a hurricane has an eye also, but it doesn't hang upon a thread. The second one stumps me. A full stein of beer from the tap?
