Thread: Place in Order?

1. Place in Order?

What is this clue is meant to mean that the "poem" is to be rearranged such that the lines of the quattrains are to be split up and reordered. For instance, if the "hands are helpful but a shovel works best" is placed after the "man has two feet, look that far down" would make more sense than coming after a line about clocks...

2. I meant to say " What if " instead of " What is"

3. I just got this. Are you suggesting we rearrange the lines themselves or just the quatrains?

Those stanzas represented by the E's and R's, since there are two of each, will be difficult to place.

4. Ive concluded the PLACE IN ORDER anagram applies best to the states which must be ordered to spell CASSIOPEIA. I dont see any other options without overthinking things.

5. Took a quick read of the book, and the night picture about stars on the horizon has Casseopeia (shaped like a 'W') on the horizon.

It has several constellations. Compare it to a star wheel. I found it most interesting that relative to Polaris and Cassiopeia, some of the lines describing the edges of the farm building on the left match the five sided figure portion of constellation Cetus. This should be rechecked for accuracy by someone else. I've rechecked it and it is proportionately correct to a margin of 1-2 degrees.

If it does mean this maybe this is the way:

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

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

Some stars at night (A)
Rest on the Horizon
Be very quiet or
You might wake one up

In your quest, (C)
Do not rest long.
where you return begins.

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

Seek a presage (I)
to give you a clue.
Three are 2's and
Two are 3's

That with which (N)
you've seen to be so,
Use as a map
in the rain, wind or snow.

Your Quest draws nearer (O)
So don't get to smart.
In order to retrieve,
You must first construct.

Graviety is important. (R)
So don't treat it lightly.
A car has two headlights.
Discard the two dimmest.

From the remainder. (D)
Locate the Omphalos
Man has two feet.
So look that far down.

If your clock stops. (E)
Watch someone else,
But a shovel work best.

Friends are caring. (R)
But gossip will spread.
Don't let it bother you,

There is some interpretation as to how the two Rs and two Es can be rearranged.

8. After going through more posts found this already referenced in two other obscure threads. This board is very unorganized, if I repost something please bear with me.

9. Has anybody noticed that PLACE IN ORDER also anagrams to RED PORCELAIN. (Covered in clay, and painted red?). Just a thought.
