Story-Teller's Beginning: A Prologue

Come listen to the stories

Of so long ago

The legends and the folk lore

Of the ancients that are told

Of the heroes and the villains

Of defeats and success

Of true love and pure hatred

Come, come listen to all this

Come listen to the tales

Heed the lessons that are taught

Solve the impossible riddles

Laugh, cry, and gain the wisdom many sought

Authors Note: I planed for this to be the intro (or prologue) to a story (or an epic), the only problem is: I don't have the story. But I like this poem, so here it is, story or no.
