The Legend of The Hewn Man

A girl once lived where a mighty oak now stands. She possessed knowledge of nature and of love: the oldest and most powerful forms of magic.

When the hunters came, her lover stood between them long enough for her to escape. But men who seek violence will have it, one way or another. They opened him up from navel to neck, and left him where he fell.

The girl returned as a raven, an acorn in her beak. She planted it where his blood soaked the land and awaited his return, that she might nest in his arms once again.
