The Golden Treasure (a poem of inspiration)

The golden treasure awaits the bold and brave...fearless of heart...
The golden treasure awaits the bold and brave...fearless of heart...
Over high mountain peaks...
Over high mountain peaks...
Valley of Muir
Valley of Muir
Follow the suns bright light...
Follow the suns bright light...
Moon's beams to gleam...
Moon's beams to gleam...
A treasure hidden on the golden shore...
A treasure hidden on the golden shore...
From west to east...the journey is long...
From west to east...the journey is long...
The search for buried treasure is treacherous and full of  hidden dangers...
The search for buried treasure is treacherous and full of hidden dangers...
Storms await those who search...
Storms await those who search...
Deep bayou where treasures await...
Deep bayou where treasures await...
The pirate's tree awaits the bold...
The pirate's tree awaits the bold...
Treasure, to some, has a deeper meaning...
Treasure, to some, has a deeper meaning...



Over the three mountains of Alakazum,

There awaits a bounty, most handsome sum,

Just go down through the valley of Muir,

For there, in its spell, is no cure.


Three golden chests, filled with coins,

Their value beyond all to compare,

A treasure of worth, well hidden,

Upon this earth, one, a marvel, so rare.


Those to reach mountains, must travel the seas,

And, is seven, to be their exact sum,

Many have searched and many were lost,

As others have turned to their rum.


A pirate's treasure, you might ask,

Must it be stolen from the richest of kings,

As men dressed in rags, carry their bags,

While "Blow the Man Down", all sings?


Wildest rumors and tales have been sewn,

Over the ages, much intrigue has grown,

Some men have died, over what they spied,

And many a fortune has been blown.


Royalty has searched the oceans, wide,

Sending their seekers, far and abroad,

Never did they find, one golden clue,

A coin on the beach, to be merely a fraud.


You may find the answer to this riddle,

A mystery wrapped in an enigma, it all seems,

Quite simply, to follow the sun, in the day,

In the night time, the moon's golden beams,


You shall reach safe harbor by morning's light,

Where the mists so shimmers and gleams.

Row your long boat to shore and so cover it well,

And where no pirate has a plot, or schemes.


This place you have reached is but a beginning,

On your eastern bound trek into the wild,

The golden chests await you there, soon,

Hidden deeply within the sands, all piled.


Bring a shovel and a mate, to help with the loot,

For is here, that on your destiny, luck has smiled,

Pay no mind to the skull and bones near a tree,

Your journey at its end, now all's sublime, so mild.


Just one request may I ask, of most gracious thanks,

Is an old pirate's one last wish, and his fondest desire,

Please, to place one doubloon in the skull's open mouth,

Near the tree, where I once did expire.

Fun and intrigue. Seems like it would be worth it to follow the guide. Words like treasure, destiny, luck and fortune certainly makes it seem so.
