Poem #540

The Narrator

The narrator is the star of a tale,
Spinning a story, weaving together the individual parts.
Their way of speaking never becomes stale.
The very first words are where the action starts.

Tell us beautiful, magical details,
Describing every character’s love and fear.
This will be a story that never fails,
To touch the hearts of all who hear.

The lyrical words flow beautifully along,
Poke right into you and pull at your soul.
The plot is growing to be very strong,
And dragging you in and swallowing you whole.

And all too soon the story comes to an end,
It was beautiful, touching, brilliant, and bold.
It has felt to you like a wonderful friend,
But you’ll just have to wait for new one to be told.
