Richard the Third, act 1 scene 1.

CLARENCE:
Yea, Richard, when I know, for I protest
As yet I do not. But, as I can learn,
He hearkens after prophecies and dreams,
   And from the crossrow plucks the letter G,
   And says a wizard told him that by “G”
His issue disinherited should be.
    And for my name of George begins with G,
It follows in his thought that I am he.
These, as I learn, and such like toys as these
Hath moved his Highness to commit me now.

Refer to "cursed" tombstone: Line 1:

tomb3.png.d3086c740f2045579bc26ecacf1c58fa.png

first and last two letters are GO and ER (two top 'corners')

these spell GORE:
noun 1; "thick, clotted blood."
noun 2: "triangular piece of ground."
verb "to pierce, stab, spear."

George is also called Clarence: C = 3

Start from left G,
      go to right E    --- 1

      go to left  O
     go to right R    --- 2

      go to left  G
end at right    E    --- 3

                                G E O R G E


Regarding the changing to and fro, or back and forth across the letters:

G is 1st in the line, O is 2nd, R is 28th and E is 29th: sum = 60.

  sonnet 60:

LIke as the waues make towards the pibled shore,
So do our minuites hasten to their end,
Each changing place with that which goes before,
In sequent toile all forwards do contend.
Natiuity once in the maine of light,
Crawles to maturity,wherewith being crown'd,
Crooked eclipses gainst his glory fight,
And time that gaue,doth now his gift confound.
Time doth transfixe the florish set on youth,
And delues the paralels in beauties brow,
Feedes on the rarities of natures truth,
And nothing stands but for his siethe to mow.
   And yet to times in hope,my verse shall stand
   Praising thy worth,dispight his cruell hand.

The inclusion of this sonnet is only on a whim, an idea so to speak.

I never saw this. It must have been a day with a lot of posts and replies and with work and family obligations for me. I try to read everything posted, but do miss one now and then.
