    Default The 'Golden Apple Tale' Poem - Place In Order Sequence

    I interpreted the "Place In Order" string derived from the letters in each picture as a reordering of the poem's quatrains from page number order to this string order. This would be relevant if the solve was order dependent.

    I'm posting here as it's lengthy and the other thread already has the poem in page number order. I also believe the poem flows better in this order.

    Golden Apple Tale Poem (reordered)

    Although the Sun rises in the East
    Low lands will have frost
    Tomorrow is another day
    Over and over again

    Chose a City, then proceed to this rhyme,
    Miss Muffet’s meal didn’t cost a dime.
    Travel 3 leagues plus 2/3 more west,
    Before you decide to exit and rest.

    Some stars at night,
    Rest on the horizon.
    Be very quiet or
    you might wake one up.

    In your quest,
    Do not rest long.
    Your hunt ends,
    Where your return begins.

    Some trees have leaves,
    And some have needles,
    At this point in time,
    They all look like hay stacks.

    Seek a presage
    to give you a clue.
    Three are 2’s and
    Two are 3’s.

    That which
    you’ve seen to be so,
    Use a map
    In the rain, wind, or snow.

    Your Quest draws nearer
    So don’t get to smart.
    In order to retrieve,
    You must first construct.

    Graviety is important,
    So don’t treat it lightly.
    A car has two headlights,
    Discard the two dimist.

    From the remainder,
    Locate the Omphalos.
    Man has two feet,
    So look that far down.

    If your clock stops,
    Watch someone elses.
    Hands are helpful,
    But a shovel works best.

    Friends are caring,
    But gossip will spread.
    Don’t let it bother you,
    or go to your head.

    I reordered the quatrains using the letter in each picture and the derived string "place in order". So the first one is "P", which is "Although the Sun rises in ..."; next is "L", which is "Chose a City, then proceed..."; and, so forth until the last letter "R".
