Clue #1: A word that you're looking for refers to the loci : "Such points that never may be found in between." Know that it refers to your fingers and your toes, but a message it conveys is vital to crossing this step. Ere it's mixet, when mixed, will tell you its form. Discover the keyword that the above passage describes, and use that keyword to decipher the hidden message in the passage. And keep the keyword with you; you'll have to use it to get the next clue. Solution #1 : Keyword : EXTREMITIES Explanation : Extremities are peripheral points (never found in between). The word also refers to parts of the body that are farthest from the heart, such as fingers and toes. If you jumble the letters of the phrase, Ere it's mixet, you get the word 'extremities'. Hidden Message : Ask me in a PM Explanation : If you look at the letters that make up the extremities of each line of the passage (going down the laft side and then the right) - the first and last letters of each line - it spells out the above message. Extra Info : This type of cryptic poetry is known as an acrostic (in this case, a double acrostic), and was common during ancient times. The acrostic is believed to have been invented by a Greek comedic writer named Epicharmus, of the 5th century BC. Poe's Elizabeth is the only famous acrostic from modern times that I'm familiar with. There are probably many more.
