Look to the story’s fabled end
the sum of tales spanning years
etched by words on the page
the twists of phrase convey the steps
rambles stated in hindsight
with each passage diagrammed
the plat convey paths walked before
with a nod to what may come
stating prospects on the map
where the lines converge at last
a far horizon of destiny
awaits the traveler if they persist.
