    "And go in peace" = go to rest. An object goes to rest as its kinetic energy goes to zero, like being at the bottom of a valley or balanced at the top of a hill (lots of potential).

    astree... you said..."WWW and EMS, W's and M's, pretty cool."...I like this

    Regarding "If you've been wise and found the blaze"...you said "There are a number of reasons, one is because by the time you reach that line, you have already found ... and followed ... something in the poem."

    That poem line is, for me, a confirmation that one has taken the correct path (at the Y) and the steps that followed have been accurate.

    I don't utilize codes, etc. to the extent that many here do and it may take me longer to see them, but I do like them and that it part of my enjoyment of Fandango, A Treasure Trove, etc. But, for the most part...this TTOTC puzzle/poem has taken me on a different journey...slow and perhaps much simpler.

    A belated Happy New Year wish...2016, and a "Leap Year" at that.

    'Just take the chest and go in peace'.

    If one considers that line by itself, it sounds as if the speaker's been robbed....

    'Just take my wallet and leave me alone.'

    Im trying to imagine the situation where answers are already known. Reference sources like a dictionary, almanac, or encyclopedia contain answers. A magic 8-ball is handy for answering any question. An echo is a good example, whatever you say becomes the answer.

    Let in-poem clues guide the way

    Genetic Blend, I really like your phrase. The one you responded to, has some information that could be quite helpful.

    H-N-Y, to you too, RP.

    Using your previous NE Fandango comment as a segue, here's something from p. 23 ( just like this and most good puzzles, most / all of the information is self-referencing, hence, "use in-poem clues to guide the way").

    The top and bottom of p. 23 border words are NORTH WEST and SOUTH EAST. Looking at those corners of the borders (and pronounce "wind" as in "winding a clock")

    WIND NORTH TU-NE EAST

    Here, they break and separate the words, and use a different pronunciation, to help hide it.

    Hope that helps, follow the fox,
