    Default Verse #7

    At stone wall's door
    The air smells sweet
    Not far away
    High posts are three
    Education and Justice
    For all to see
    Sounds from the sky
    Near ace is high
    Running north, but first across
    In jewel's direction
    Is an object
    Of Twain's attention
    Giant pole
    Giant step
    To the place
    The casque is kept.

    Has anyone seriously considered the area around the Presidio Golf Course? I realize that the Presidio was previously a military base, but were the full extents of the (current) park originally part of the base?

    At stone wall's door
    --- Jackson St runs right up to one of the Presidio's entrances.
    The air smells sweet
    Not far away
    --- Not too far from Ghiradelli's, and I think you'd be around the backside
    High posts are three
    ---- ?
    Education and Justice
    For all to see
    ---- The Palace of Fine Arts is close by, and there's always Alcatraz
    Sounds from the sky
    Near ace is high
    Running north, but first across
    ---- Highway 1 runs north on the far side of the golf course (crossing the Golden Gate)
    In jewel's direction
    Is an object
    Of Twain's attention
    ---- ?
    Giant pole
    ---- ?
    Giant step
    ---- ?
    To the place
    The casque is kept.

    I'm not real familiar with the area, but maybe someone else who is can comment on this.

    The other location presumed for this verse
    is Audubon Park in New Orleans.

    This is the spot where the Mississippi River
    (Twain's affection) run's mostly West
    prior to continueing on its Northward flow.

    The high posts are the three Universities
    in a small city area (Law School and School of
    Education.

    I do not believe the park has been given a walk
    through looking for a pole and a step.

    The linked image is also throught to be image 7.

    San Francisco is considered the jewel of California. Mark twain is known to have stayed there.

    I believe I have a good general idea where this thing is. I was goign to cross reference any of my findings with q4t, but I can't access the forums yet. =(

    I don't know about this. Twains affection could be the caves in Missouri. Or a riverboat (St Louis)? I'm from N.O. and this verse bugs me. I've only just begun so I have much catching up to do... Lafitte

    Keep in mind that
    in reference to "Twain's Affection"
    is that it
    "run's mostly north, but first across
    in jewel's direction"

    Maybe be a riverboat, doesn't describe caves.

    The Mississippi is the only river that runs North,
    and here in Noew Orleans, it first runs east to west (across)

    That would mean, to find the jewel site, one would
    be at the starting point (Jackson Square)
    and transverse west to east.

    funny, my book says "Twain's ATTENTION"

    But I can understand affection.

    Yes, it is ATTENTION,

    (i think I was taking poetic license)

    no worries, I know many a folk that get accused of not showing AFFECTION when what the real culprit was to be the ATTENTION not showed.

    If this is the Verse, how could Katrina have altered the references?

    Come on Mardi Gras! Laffite, get some floor space ready next to that shelf that casque will be on.
