I've a forest within but no trees to be spied;
Travellers are welcome, no passports required.
I can offer the past or the future, you choose -
Find your teacher or mentor, your prophet or muse.

My stillness a refuge - in me you can trust.
In me you'll meet heroes, adventurers, spies,
Lovers and lawyers and gods - what am I?
