Once Upon My Time


Someone To Tell Our Story To

The story is told by firelight of one dark and stormy night,

Of once upon a time

Maybe even the nursery rhyme.

Lilt and cadence,

Letters arranged on paper, with lines straight and curved, printed and script

Someone to hear our story is one of life’s greatest needs

Lift the pen!  The universe heeds

The story is told from only a seed

A story only one can tell.

Line and lilt and perhaps a brogue

Tells a story only our hearts can hold.
