A puzzle for you to solve I propose,
a story of pictures being the method I've chose.
Pay careful attention to this tale I retell,
a tale of the past that most know well.
Thought it will take ere you understand,
the true meanings behind symbols at hand.
The answers in store are ever nigh,
for there's more to lore than meets the eye.
More to hear than reaches the ear,
so solve my Riddle if truth you've no fear...
