Verse 1
            Fortress north
            Cold as glass
            Friendship south
            Take your task
            To the number
            Nine eight two
            Through the wood
            No lion fears
            In the sky the water veers
            Small of scale
            Step across
            Perspective should not be lost
            In the center of four alike
            Small, split,
            Three winged and slight
            What we take to be
            Our strongest tower of delight
            Falls gently
            In December night
            Looking back from treasure ground
            There's the spout!
            A whistle sounds.

Verse 2
            At the place where jewels abound
            Fifteen rows down to the ground
            In the middle of twenty-one
            From end to end
            Only three stand watch
            As the sound of friends
            Fills the afternoon hours
            Here is a sovereign people
            Who build palaces to shelter
            Their heads for a night!
            Gnomes admire
            Fays delight
            The namesakes meeting
            Near this site.

            A green tower of lights
            In the middle section
            Near those
            Who pass the coliseum
            With metal walls
            Face the water
            Your back to the stairs
            Feel at home
            All the letters
            Are here to see
            Eighteenth day

            Lit by lamplight
            In truth, be free.

            In a rectangular plot
            Beneath the tenth stone
            From right to left
            Beneath the ninth row from the top
            Of the wall including small bricks
            Seven steps up you can hop
            From the bottom level

            You'll see an arc of lights
            Weight and roots extended
            Together saved the site
            Of granite walls
            Wind swept halls
            Citadel in the night
            A wingless bird ascended
            Born of ancient dreams of flight
            Beneath the only standing member
            Of a forest
            To the south
            White stone closest
            At twelve paces
            From the west side
            Get permission
            To dig out.

Verse 6
            Of all the romance retold
            Men of tales and tunes
            Cruel and bold
            Seen here
            By eyes of old
            Stand and listen to the birds
            Hear the cool, clear song of water
            Harken to the words:
            Freedom at the birth of a century
            Or May 1913
            Edwin and Edwina named after him
            Or on the eighth a scene
            Where law defended
            Between two arms extended
            Below the bar that binds
            Beside the long palm's shadow
            Embedded in the sand
            Waits the Fair remuneration
            White house close at hand.
             
Verse 7
            At stone wall's door
            The air smells sweet
            Not far away
            High posts are three

            Sounds from the sky
            Near ace is high
            Running north, but first across
            In jewel's direction

            Giant pole
            Giant step

Verse 8
            View the three stories of Mitchell
            As you walk the beating of the world

            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.

Verse 9
            The first chapter
            Written in water
            Near men
            With wind rose
            Behind bending branches
            And a green picket fence
            At the base of a tall tree
            You can still hear the honking
            Shell, limestone, silver, salt
            Stars move by day
            Sails pass by night
            Even in darkness
            Like moonlight in teardrops
            Over the tall grass
            Years pass, rain falls.

Verse 10
            In the shadow
            Of the grey giant
            Find the arm that
            Extends over the slender path
            In summer
            You'll often hear a whirring sound
            Cars abound
            Although the sign
            Nearby
            Speaks of Indies native
            The natives still speak
            Of him of Hard word in 3 Vols.
            Take twice as many east steps as the hour
            Or more
            From the middle of one branch
            Of the v
            Look down
            And see simple roots
            In rhapsodic man's soil
            Or gaze north
            Toward the isle of B.

Verse 11
            Pass two friends of octave
            In December
            Ride the man of oz
            To the land near the window
            There's a road that leads to
            Dark forest
            Where white is in color
            With two maps
            After circle and square
            In July and August
            A path beckons
            To mica and driftwood
            Under that
            Which may be last touched
            Or first seen standing
            Look north at the wing
            And dig
            To achieve
            By dauntless and inconquerable
            Determination
            Your goal.
