To Shape the Future
Legolas spoke to the wood before he raised the axe and cut the length he needed; now he ran his hands along the chosen piece, stroked it gently as if it was a familiar pet, and continued to speak.
“I will shape you, hollow you out, carve you so that you are beautiful. You will be the cradle for our son; you will shelter him and sooth him so that he is rocked, here within our new forest, in a cradle carved from the forest itself. You will be a symbol of the bond forged here between Elves and trees.”
