Saving the Past

Stories,

Flowing like a river,

Generation to generation,

As minds begin to wither.

 

Letter by letter,

Word by word,

Stories to be read,

Lessons to be learned.

 

Coming from the wise,

History to maintain

Soothing to the mind

Like the sound of falling rain.

 

Cultures lost in time,

Stories told in vain,

As tellings fall upon deaf ears,

The past begins to fade.
