This is the place, the old ones say,
Where moonglow bathes the lake,
And an unearthly shimmer shines
Beyond the towering pines.
They say a spaceship landed here,
In a dark, despairing year,
Right where the coral poppies bloom–
Bereft of sun, they thrive in gloom.
Bury your treasure, gems and gold,
And it will be increased sevenfold.
I think it’s worth a try, don’t you?
Meet you there at half past two.
