An old man is lost
within a dark forrest made of shadows.
So the man cuts down a tree
and builds a lantern with the wood.
The man hopes the lantern will help
illuminate his way out of the forrest.
However the light of this lantern reveals
that the shadow forrest has no exit,
and the man grows concerned
that he may be forever lost.
Soon after a figure approaches the old man
from out of the shadows.
Then another, and another after that.
The light from the man's lantern has become a beacon
for those who, like him, have also become lost in the forrest.
Around the lantern they gather
to play games and tell stories
of their many adventures in the shadow forrest,
and this place soon becomes
their beloved home.
