Your journey begins here,
Our blue field northwest bound.
From east, follow any crimson-shaded path of seven
Skidding upon the edge of white, crimson laying beyond
Make haste to the end,
If a field of blue does not lie ahead, make due north to find it
This azure field of fifty silvery odd flowers, those budding in time of centuries
Now from patterns seen in ventures past,
You venture here and what you have
Is a field, and seven crimson paths, parallel to a half-dozen white
And this supposed place is but a symbolic one
And a spectacle from afar representing that
Which can only be felt through heart.
