Geocache Description:


What UTTER nonsense. This poet was renowned for complete and UTTER nonsense. Some say he was very much under the influence. The poem will provide all the information needed for co-ordinates of the (very) general area to park.

Fifteen oceans deepest blue
    orcas dive, their eyes round
Ultimate circles, five times the hex.

Rivers froth, silt and sound
    slowly meander, like figures of
Eight they gently sigh

Valleys deep, serene forest
   elven dreams, we cannot scale
Nor comprehend their eternal test

Neither logarithmic time, of nine fold nine
   is it an Ogham or
Neanderthal line?

Evermore, evermore
   one to one
Nevermore, nevermore.

Eighteen slots
   feathered by fives
Intuit time divided by a dozen IXs.

Valleys deep, serene forest
    elven dreams, we cannot scale
Open hearts, powered by cold Avagadro.

Nest of snakes
   envelops Medusa, prime number
Seventy one and ten betwixt the late Solstice.

Intelligence divine, the sun xeniths in ancient
   xototl time.
One to one.

Nevermore, evermore!
   entertain these witty acrostic hiders, will ye?
