I think that the poem is attempting to do at least 2 things. I think that ff is describing his own personal journey while at the same time giving searchers both the end point and directions of how to get there. The directions are there mostly to check your work you need to know where you are going before you start. That is why figuring out the first 2 clues does you no good. Like a set of house plans the architect shows you the result before you start.



This, I think, begins to explain why stanzas 1, 5, and 6 are quite different than 2, 3, and 4. So by saying that there are 9 clues ff is giving us something very important. Those 9 clues are going to correspond to specific places and directions. So there is a way to solve it, a key if you like, already built in. Like a math problem you can go either direction. I need to shut up before I start sounding too much like Samsmith. My answer B. If you don't know the blaze - play canasta.

I would have to go with A, but the entire stanza not just one line...IMO you are right Buddy, sorry about that...Except!...If you don't have WWWH stay home and play canasta...IMO you will never find the correct blaze until you get that right... Smile

that being said, is up the loaded/high creek or not?


The Nine Clue List - Buddy Allen - 04-16-2015

Best place to get loaded-Lizzard Lounge. Try this thought on for size, the reason that he used the architect analogy or metaphor is because a flight plan would give too much away.

What I think the nine clues are *



[01] As I have gone alone in there

[02] And with my treasures bold,

[03] I can keep my secret where,

[04] And hint of riches new and old.



* [05] Begin it where warm waters halt

[06] And take it in the canyon down,

* [07] Not far, but too far to walk.

* [08] Put in below the home of Brown.



[09] From there it's no place for the meek,

[10] The end is ever drawing nigh;

* [11] There'll be no paddle up your creek

* [12] Just heavy loads and water high



* [13] If you've been wise and found the blaze,

* [14] Look quickly down, your quest to cease,

[15] But tarry scant with marvel gaze,

[16] Just take the chest and go in peace.



[17] So why is it that I must go

[18] And leave my trove for all to seek?

[19] The answers I already know,

[20] I've done it tired, and now I’m weak.



[21] So hear me all and listen good,

* [22] Your effort will be worth the cold.

* [23] If you are brave and in the wood

[24] I give you title to the gold.

As I have gone alone the poem



hmmmm... care to share a little more?



I've considered this possibility but haven't been able to answer what "treasures bold" are... perhaps memories? If so, why use the word "bold"?



Are you concluding that "in there" is the poem... is the first clue?

If in there means in the poem then treasures bold means what? Not treasures in the chest but...

Some words may be there just for rhyme & meter.
