So why is it that I must go and leave my trove for...

Forrest Fenn’s treasure poem has six stanzas and nine clues.  

The 5th stanza:

The fifth stanza contains two commas, one question mark and one period, making for two complete sentences.

The first three lines (and half of the last line) are in the present-tense.  The first half of the last line is in the past-tense.

Why does this stanza get two sentences, when most only get one?  Does that mean that there are two important clues hidden within?

Very little to go on here.  

So, of course, that means it’s probably pretty important in some way…


Possible Interpretations:

Your guess is as good as mine.  This stanza seems nearly devoid of useful clues.

So, of course, that means that there is almost surely one extremely important clue hidden in there somewhere.


Probably tired and weak.

Other Ideas...:

The 5th Stanza appears to contain virtually no usable clues.  So, of course, that means that it’s probably immensely important.  When Forrest recites the poem, he often stumbles a bit on the Fifth stanza (and a lot on the Sixth Stanza).  Whereas, it appears he knows the first four stanzas perfectly, by heart.

So, the clues in the 5th Stanza are likely only clues that help you find the treasure chest once you are already at the final location.  Who knows?...

The Verdict:
