It’s true. The great tales never end. Leastways, not as tales.

My part has long come and gone, but I still sit on mid-lithe eves midst cricket-song and lanthorne light, and tell of the hero who lost limb and nearly life to save us all. I tell of wondrous creatures with powers fair and dark, bearded sages, magical swords… and the deeper lesson that power, though born of beauty and grace, can yet turn foul with greed.

And each time as I tell the tale anew, thirteen little mouths silently follow along …

“Long ago, in a galaxy far, far away…”
