Of Wars And Wonder - Poem by Jonzo Bandwagoner

In small eyes the world
Hides its secrets-the
Untold rhymes, archaic
Riddles left unanswered
Through times
Of appling skies when
Stories take flight-at
Their bedpost feet, sages
Gather, open ears
To hear
Of wars and wonder!
Aged tales depict
Dense, distant lores-translucent
Heroes who left their lands
In myth.
So through child eyes, the world
Sings its songs! These
Lullabies, each magically
Created, come suddenly,
Mysteriously,
Alive.
