The Well is as old as the world and contains it all
within its distant depths.
Reflected there are wonders.
The crying of a mouse within its nest.
The fiery birth of the greatest star
and its last guttering flame.
The founding of mighty nations,
their rise and triumph
and their final dust.
Travellers meet at the Well, our goals met.
We pause and share the tales of our journeys.
Our adventures on the way,
The dream we had last night,
Lessons learned, and sacrifices made.
We do not know why we have come here.
We drink, leave our offerings, and move on.
