Did you hear about the faun in the forest?
Some say he only comes out during the balance amongst the seasons. He’s a large being- adorned with mighty antlers, shaggy fur covers his body, and steps swiftly in large hooves. The beast man strides to a tree trunk and begins playing a flute every time. The song stirs the forest life.
Shadows stretch to watch the annual recital.
The bats chirp along.
Trees shake off their leaves from dancing.
Even the wind howls in awe.
It’s said he just sits there and plays, you might catch him if you dare.
