The poem gives us an angle and possibly one side, depending on how far you take the angle.

I can see WWWH as the hypotenuse, but I don't have any sides. Maybe someone can find a side?

I should explain what I'm thinking. Mr. Fenn had said many times that a person can find the chest with (just the poem). Ok, I have had some luck finding things that others have lost. I've had good luck finding gold, "BUT" the reason is, I always had something (factual) to go on. Does the poem gives us anything that we can hold up as a fact? The only things that I have gotten from the poem are possibly Solo,NM. solo being a synonym for alone, and La Madera,NM. La Madera being a synonym for wood. And the definition of warm waters, being any water above 74 degrees f. I've noticed that Solo, La madera and Ojo Caliente, form almost a perfect triangle. I've used 74 degrees as a compass azimuth, from Santa Fe and Solo, I've always thought Solo was the first clue. But anyway, I still don't have any fact, to start from.

Any three points can form a perfect triangle, unless all three points are in a straight line.
.. These are all just my ideas. I hope no one uses them.
