A golden ring

A sword by a lady

Genie in the lamp


Silver kept by first

People before

John Reed could

Claim the hero’s



Who keeps the

Holy Grail?  Who

Killed Cock Robin


And, more soberly,

Black Dahlia?


Where is Jimmy

Hoffa?  Where

Did D. B. Cooper

Fall?   What

Happened to the

Mary Celeste

And Flight 19?


And where is the

Key to my hidden



I don’t know

Much about holy

Relics, enigmatic


Famous mysteries;


About secrets,

Well, I’ve kept a

Few—I’d rather

Not have had to


To children,

Secrets make

Innocent mischief;


Later, for safety

Sake, they might

Be exigent even

Into years


But, finally,

When the glass

Is no longer

Darkly, when we

Shall see with



And all shall be

Known face to



On that day I

Shall be

Relieved, for

Heavy chore

Has been

Reliving secrets



(First Corinthians 13:12)
