    I'm having a lot of fun with Verse 10. Although ere must be 1000's of possibilities, I'm willing to consider the Harding monument further. The matches to image are compelling enough. The rebuttals that I've encountered claim a lot of things about my random line drawing and over complicated approach...well, I'm here to share anyhow, and I'm still waiting for a pleasant and REAL rebuttal, one which holds up to a gentle breeze...

    Soon, I will have a line by line for this verse.

    No 'Google Maps' in the early 80's and no way of predicting or knowing what scale a physical map was in, if he even used one.

    Now thats a real rebuttal. So true, my hopes that my den of a 1000 uncompensated workers slowly scrolling through google earth pixel by pixel would eventually come through arent really paying off. If anything, a pamphlet park map (which is just barely on par with a 5 yr old child's version of cartography) is all he might have used.

    Im having a stumbling moment and something is bothering me, shaking my confidence actually, so I would like to ask for help with something that's probably ridiculously simple to anyone reading this, but i'll ask any way.

    The use of allusion. With some lines in verse 12: rumble, brush and music, hush. I want to think of those as allusion to train tracks, art school and music stage. Is that not so? Is allusion considered more on the obtuse or indirect, or can it simply be usage of a word to mean another word?

    I'm attempting the same conclusion with verse 9: branches, green, and base as allusion to 'army camp'. Am I that mistaken on my understanding of allusion?

    Thanks for any help.

    It's a new day...I'm still stuck on this relational problem. Things like these deserve attention, because it's a simple feat to resolve once the key component of a complicated process is recognized.

    Please PM me with your analysis, thanks treasure hunting enthusiasts.

    Delaying on verse 10 for the moment, thought I'd work on verse 2.

    At the place where jewels abound
    I'm guessing it's the dense layout of lamp posts on Basin Steet.
    Fifteen rows down to the ground
    The south west corner of St. Louis Cemetery No. 1 has 15 rows of tombs "down to the ground".
    In the middle of twenty-one
    east of those 15 rows can be found tomb #21.
    From end to end
    Only three stand watch

    Along Basin are only three statues: Simon Bolivar, Benito Juarez, and Francisco Morazan.
    As the sound of friends
    Fills the afternoon hours
    Here is a sovereign people
    Who build palaces to shelter
    Their heads for a night!

    Tourist and family visiting the cemetery. Tombs are the palaces. "The living find comfort and are consoled by visiting the burial places of their loved ones and praying for them," is written on the plaque at the gate entrance.
    Gnomes admire
    Stone tombs
    Fays delight
    Spirits
    The namesakes meeting
    Near this site.

    St. Louis street / St. Louis Cemetery. (I know it sounds too easy, but only cemetery #1 touches St. Louis street.)

    I have a map in progress, the arch of Armstrong park is near, the Superdome is near, but there are other items not so close. I'm not sure at all how the path goes, but my guess is it begins with the McDonogh statue.

    I hope you don't think a cemetery is your casque location. NO casques were buried in cemeteries. That's in the back of the book.

    Edited inside quote to reflect the iconic triple lamp posts on Canal Street. Also, folks should not be confused about a reference to a cemetery. I am not suggesting we dig inside of it's boundaries. An image based on aligning the statues along Basin and centering a line on the 21st tomb which peeks over the wall shows us a spot well outside the cemetery boundaries.

    Street lights and stars in the sky are easily and often referred to as jewels by artists and professional writers:

    I am reminded of a fun riddle about the moon,
    Jewel on black velvet, pearl in the sea
    Unchanged but e'er changing, eternally.


    The stars and moon in image 7,



    Canal Street,



    How the style of dangling lanterns might look like earrings,



    My map of a spot in the middle of an oval median in the middle of Basin Street,



    The oval bulge in the lower right of image7 with BP's own iconic dragon sitting in the middle,



    Thanks for letting me share these ideas, they are no longer mine, but yours to defend, attack, or simply have fun with.

    I reconsidered my focus on image6. It might be saying "33" for the 33rd state, which is Oregon. And it might be saying 45 Latitude, 122 Longitude

    Compare the raw image with my suggestions in the copy below:
