guess you're about ready to put this one to rest.  alas, not those but good to hear you're in it 'til the end.  wanted to have a rewrite along with this reply but haven't quite been satisfied with what ive got thus far.  y'all are still not far off and may get it before I can come up with a better clue.

nope, that wasn't a hint, just a play on your previous response.

close again from the other direction.  perhaps combining the two?

that is indeed a fine answer.  fits both the direction established in posts #23 and #31 as well as the last 1/4 of the couplet as in post #34 (especially with the original version).  so very close to the answer needed am ashamed to say you still need another.  but you're right there.

 

EDIT:  in rereading post #23, it similarly fits the last 1/4 of the couplet as well - rats
