I.   The key to the puzzle

         for you to hold

     of tin or iron 

         but not of gold.

 II.   Rare is the vision

           of the red-eyed cat

    For the one on the left

           is where it sat.

III   To guard the key

          the cat does sit

.    In wet surround

          within the pit.

IV.  In darkness far within

          the maze

     of far-out hills

         a trail to blaze

V.  Cross the cat

          in peril be

     as found in death

          you soon may be

VI.   Pay for life

            with loose of tongue

        a generation

             soon be gone

VII.   Rescue that

             that dwells within

         from those whose fate

             was sealed by sin.

VIII.  In down direction, you must be

             Right foot look upon the sea

         left could find the sign you need

              Two arrows point thine to thee

IX.  Up dark path

             more eyes deceive

       three trunks entwine

             dark shadows flee
