Million $$ Poem

  • Print

Here is a poem that the writer says will lead you to a treasure chest that is filled with $1 million in gold and precious stones.  The writer, Forrest Fenn, is an 82-year old guy who wrote a book about the treasure hunt.  But he unwittingly released the poem.  So now you don't have to buy the book.  If you want the book too, it's called "The Thrill Of The Chase."  It's on sale at

Here is the poem:

As I have gone alone in there
And with my treasures bold,
I can keep my secret where,
And hint of riches new and old.
Begin it where warm waters halt
And take it in the canyon down,
Not far, but too far to walk.
Put in below the home of Brown.
From there it’s no place for the meek,
The end is ever drawing nigh;
There’ll be no paddle up your creek,
Just heavy loads and water high.
If you’ve been wise and found the blaze,
Look quickly down, your quest to cease,
But tarry scant with marvel gaze,
Just take the chest and go in peace.
So why is it that I must go
And leave my trove for all to seek?
The answers I already know,
I’ve done it tired, and now I’m weak.
So hear me all and listen good,
Your effort will be worth the cold.
If you are brave and in the wood
I give you title to the gold.
