From the youngest generation to the oldest generation there is a story to be told of every person who has ever existed. Everyone has trials and triumphs. Everyone has a destination in the end. The
"Storyteller" is a representation of all the triumphs over the challenges of this life and of all who endure with strength and courage.

The youngest generation

Meets the oldest trees

 

How young ago

Did the blossoms blossom?

 

For every harvest of ages

The fallen kernels count the time

 

The time of failures no longer hold

The time of trust begins to get bold

 

Lost mountains strain the rivers

Until storms carve through and pierce

 

With many trials more rivers flow

With many rivers more gardens grow

 

The jade throne still dances

As children grasp the swing of eternity

 

As we age and wrinkle

We become more childlike in laughter

 

The Storyteller returns with the gift of a smile

To tell the story of all triumphs in every mile
