    Default Is it Time - To Rhyme?

    Looking at the story text, Jeff used a technique which basically forced a rhyme, as some have noted, making the flow of reading a bit strained.

    Now, looking at the "poem" created by the border letters, at first glance not many of these phrases rhyme....or do they. Not in the usual places, but somewhere in the middle of the phrase.

    Perhaps the intent is to reorder or at least revise the flow of the phrases such that we force a rhyme on these too. Maybe it will reveal some more coded information?

    Hi Steve,

    I liked your idea so I explored it. I'm unsure if I could uncover all but I'll give you what I've got so far.

    There appears to be not much rhyming in the border phrases. My inclinatin in reading each phrase was start left side page and read up to top, then down to right and then bottom of page - starting each read from left to right as is natural. Then I rearranged the phrases to fit poetically. The only one that worked was p. 7.

    DEEP DOWN
    I RULE THE SEA
    SCEPTRE IN HAND
    A MYSTERY

    If you take the last words of each phrase in each border, rhymes didn't happen. My list follows...
    P. 5 FANDANGO, FOX, NOSE, PLEASURE
    P. 7 DOWN, SEA, HAND, MYSTERY
    P. 10 GOLD, AWAY, WIND, SAKE
    P. 15 MARSH, CROSS, ESCAPE, BACK
    P. 17 LINE, FOUR, CARRIES, NAME
    P. 19 REFLECTS, HELD, THREE, SMILE
    P. 23 WIND, WEST, TUNE, EAST
    P. 26 SPELL, DAWN, LIGHT, SHADOW
    P. 30 GLOBE, DOOR, DREAM, INSIDE
    P. 32 FIRE, SIGNALS, QUEST, SPEAK
    P. 34-35 TIME, FLAMES, NIGHTMARE, FIRE
    P. 40 WORDS, PIE, TIME, TWO
    P. 44-45 ME, POINT, SEA, MACK
    P. 47 ROUND, TURVY, BREEZE, DOWN
    P. 51 SKY, TIDE, END, TELL
    P. 55 LOST, TOGETHER, FOUND, HELD

    Can't really find words that would rhyme well...

    Keep trovin',
    Beth
