this weekend i found a plant emerging in a somewhat open mature woods. its a very wet site with loads of skunk cabbage coming up. Im afraid i dont have a picture, but the shoots are about 7-10 inches tall and its leaf after leaf rolled up like a big green cigar. the leaves are creased like corrugated metal siding and i cant seem to find a flower bud hidden in it, it is NOT lily of the valley, im sure of that, thanks and sorry for the poor explination.

False hellebore? Do a google image search in addition to one below. Ribbed nature of leaves shows better in some others.

Here is a link that might be useful: false hellebore

How about jack in the pulpit, Arisaema triphyllum? When they are emerging they look like points coming out of the ground.

Try looking at ferns esp fiddle head ferns. Sounds to me like you are looking at a frond? before it has fully opened.
