I don't know if it's shoddy, or Forrest messing around



Here's the original-original website version ( I am pasting as link, and then as link with space in the http, in case the first link doesn't show again )

The current website version changed "tresures" to "treasures"



Other link I attempted to post

Well, yes, I am most definitely messing with the poem.



I'm deleting all spaces and punctuation, arranging the stanzas as 17,18,19,20,21,22,23,24,1,2 and then reading down the 11th column to find a 9-letter English word that means "waters located immediately downstream from a hydraulic structure, such as a dam (excluding minimum release such as for fish water), bridge or culvert."

But does anyone else think that it's relevant that when you arrange the letters of the last 7 stanzas, followed by the first 2, and then read down column 11, you get the word TAILWATER? (Or, if you include stanza 3, TAILWATERS.)

Beautiful find !



Works for this version of the poem



http://www.oldsantafetradingco.com/the-t...ource-page



( with that version I am surprised a bit, that the original "tresure" was corrected, but "answer" was not corrected to the p. 132 "answers" .... pointing out, as previously, that the original difference in letters between the two version, was "AS" ... )



But not for the poem on p. 132 of his book

Arg. There's a difference between the website version and the book? Shoddy.

I can't find any mention of this on this forum or others, and apologies in advance if it's been discussed and I've overlooked it.

I've done enough armchair treasure hunting to be very blasà about words of up to 6 letters appearing in grids such as this. But a 9-letter English word? And one which would seem to focus the meaning of WWWH at that.

You do know that Forrest said that WWWH is not associated with a dam?
