A big credit to @frodoskywalker for my riddle. Although the user did not write this riddle, one of their answers on this site served an inspiration. I will not show the particular answer, however, in order to not spoil the riddle, but I fully encourage you to visit the user's profile and check out their content.


Riddle me this:

I am heavier than a boulder,
For which I will never flow;
But I am lighter than the feather,
Of a raven or a crow.

I can be found in heated weather,
Where not often, it would snow.
My arm may look like driest leather,
Spraying water with a blow.

What am I?

Comparing mine arm to a tree,
Forsooth, it will be not a branch.
May thou solve for what I could be?
Try! sabotage not thy chance!

A man was so hight after me;
His real name was seldom spoken.
May thou solve for whom he could be?
His poem might have thee heartbroken.


My previous riddle proved too easy, so I have added the "Shakespeare vibe" in the hint above so as to make the riddle harder, hence why I included the wordplay and language tag.

Are you an

Elephant

I am heavier than a boulder, For which I will never flow;

Elephants are very heavy.

But I am lighter than the feather, Of a raven or a crow.

Maybe the shadow of which is used in a known puzzle(what is the same size as an elephant but weighs nothing). OR, as Jafe suggested in the comments, it could refer to the paler color of an elephant.

I can be found in heated weather, Where not often, it would snow.

In Asia and Africa

My arm may look like driest leather, Spraying water with a blow.

They have trunks that spray water.

The title

The horns maybe the tusks.

Comparing mine arm to a tree, Forsooth, it will be not a branch.

An elephants legs are massive they may be as large as a tree's trunk.

May thou solve for what I could be? Try! sabotage not thy chance!

I answered it.

A man was so hight after me; His real name was seldom spoken.

There was a man who had a disease and people called him "Elephant Man". (From EightAndAHalfTails)

May thou solve for whom he could be? His poem might have thee heartbroken.
