    Default Verse #8

    View the three stories of Mitchell
    As you walk the beating of the world
    At a distance in time
    From three who lived there
    At a distance in space
    From woman, with harpsichord
    Silently playing
    Step on nature
    Cast in copper
    Ascend the 92 steps
    After climbing the grand 200
    Pass the compass and reach
    The foot of the culvert
    Below the bridge
    Walk 100 paces
    Southeast over rock and soil
    To the first young birch
    Pass three, staying west
    You'll see a letter from the country
    Of wonderstone's hearth
    On a proud, tall fifth
    At its southern foot
    The treasure waits.

    I was thinking New York for a little bit with this one. I had remembered a sculpture I know of there, but it turns out that it was not contemporary with The Secret.

    The Sculpture was of Duke Ellington, playing the piano, supported by 3 muses. Of course, I couldn't remember at the time who it portrayed or who it was by, so I couldn't tell if it was there 20 yrs ago. Turns out it wasn't... but if you want to see. Here's a link anyway

    Barking up the wrong tree... seems to be my specialty.

    Cheers-

    You'll see a letter from the country
    Of wonderstone's hearth
    On a proud, tall fifth
    Guy Fawkes day?

    I wouldn't call it proud...

    What are you hinting at, fox, my friend?

    The one and only!

    A lot over at Q4T are pretty convinced that the Milwaukee casque is in Lake Park...but most of them continue right past the good Gen. W and end up in the woods.

    I have starting rocking the boat by wondering if the last few lines refer to this statue. Still waiting to hear from a fellow hunter from Q4T who has visited the area several times to see what, if anything, is around trusty Gunpowder's southern foot.
