For the Story Walker
I met an old spinner
‘neath the shade of the graht oak.
On the path, I was a beginner
when to me, these words she spoke:
Simply follow the story,
hold your ear to the song.
You’ll find no richer quarry,
and you’ll never stray wrong.
Wend your trek through the night,
sing your legend all the day.
You’ll discover dark is light
in the twists along the way.
The gold is in the telling
weave through peace, wind through war.
In the tale, we will be dwelling–
Story walkers live for lore.
Daily Prompt: “try your hand at a meta-poem of your own,” from Na/GloPoWriMo.
Poet’s Note: I have a guild on ESO called StoryWalkers, designed for those of us who love the lore! (We even have a library at our guildhouse where our collection of Shalidor’s volumes are nearly complete!) Our motto is “Read fast, play slow.”
