What Books Do You Open? (For Kleio)

What books do you open?
What words there inscribe?
On leaves made from trees,
Or the page of my soul?

You set tales in order:
Beginning, through middle, to end.
You help me to see — and to sing — 
My own story.

You lay open before me
Wisdom of sages past.
You inspire me to speak
Their tales, for our time.
