[A-Z Challenge] Story of a Story

Quirks of Life starting with S is Story. Stories from childhood help us begin understand the different aspects of life. Here is a story about story itself. Hope you enjoy it! This is part of April A-Z challenge details of which is present here.

Far away in some land
A long long time ago
A little bird chirped
Story was its name

For it chirped tales
Into its little master's ear
For stories no one knew
How it came or from where

The little master regaled
The fables of little story
Popular he became
For the fables were enchanting

Men, women and children
All sat by listening to tales
That little story weaved
Retold by its little master

Came a fateful day then
Little Story fell ill
No tale it could weave
For even a blooming flower fades

Inconsolable the little master was
And desolate was the village
Yet when Story slept
Its last ever sleep

A promise it made
Weave a tale it will
In all the village's heart
For a noble heart it had

And Story was re-born
Into the hearts of all men
Weaving stories for ages
Spreading cheer all around

And that my friend how
Stories came into being
And a lot called story-tellers
For everyone likes a good story!
