Windows of stories

For stories so ancient
The words are coherent
Yet something is errant
The meaning confusing

And if language is different
Then words aren't sufficient
Some extra contingent
Is needed, less restricting

The windows are proficient
At communicating the torrent
Of meanings transparent
Animation is revealing

I've never thought about strained glass as animation before, but you're right
