Folklore of the Forest

Shadows cast upon your face
There is magic held in the dark
As you search for the keepers of this place
Let not your fear show or your footsteps miss their mark

Branches rattle in the air
As you try to make yourself believe
That there is nothing there
But you have lost the opportunity to leave

Many stories have been told
Those who fail to see the truth of it all
Shall be lost to the creatures of old
Into their clutches you shall fall

You can not enter such a dangerous land
Without faith in magic as your guide
As the forest folk reach for you with open hand
There is nowhere to hide

Now I warn you to take heed
When walking through their home
Respect you most certainly will need
Lest you be taken by troll, wolf or gnome
