The Storyteller

The Storyteller

by Toni Truesdale

Morality tales in retrospection

Sing the world into creation, again;

Reenacting the cumulative wisdom

Cultural knowledge retains,

In prose that teaches;

Rules, mores and responsibilities

Concerning complex relationships

Of original instructions.

In commonality within communities,

The oral traditions reflect;

Collective memory in the timeless narratives

Of the Storyteller.
