I could have written the poem before

I could have written the poem before
I could have written the poem before I hid the chest, but I didn't.
I could have writ ten clues into the poem before I hid the chest, but I decided to stop at nine.

He does say it contains nine clues.
He does not say it contains only nine clues.

RE: I could have written the poem before
I just now counted all of the clues,from the poem, to the end of my solve.
17 clues
The last one being BRAVE AND IN THE WOOD.
9 or 10 clues gets me to the x
All the rest must be figured out on the spot.
Only filler lines in my solve are
AS I HAVE GONE ALONE IN THERE
AND WITH MY TREASURES BOLD
I CAN KEEP MY SECRET WHERE
JUST TAKE THE CHEST AND GO IN PEACE
SO HEAR ME ALL AND LISTEN GOOD
I GIVE YOU TITLE TO THE GOLD

Forrest, Did you intend for there to be 9 clues, or did it work out to be just right with 9? ~ halo

Nice thinking halo, I didn’t count the clues until the poem had been finalized. Although I changed it a few times over the months I think the number stayed about the same.f

Halogetter tried to get him to commit, but no dice!! Smile

"number stayed about the same"??.....maybe just 9?.....mebbe more?

My thought is there might be 9 main clues with other stand-alone words that point back and confirm the main clues. Such as "alone" confirming clue 8 or w/e. I never worried about counting them though, I think it can be a barrier in your mind that can hinder your progress. "I have 9 solid clues, I'll stop looking for more now, time to shell out $1000 and put BOTG."

RE: I could have written the poem before
"I could have written the poem before I hid the chest, but I didn't."

The simplest understanding of this is had by inserting "down" before "before" - it was only in his mind.

An alternative reading is that the poem wasn't complete when he hid the chest, but the clues to that point got you to the general vicinity. Then he worked on the last few clues or tweaked the earlier ones to fit the precise location sufficiently.

Or, more likely, something completely different! p
