Raven took his perch on the Assembly Oak and addressed
a special meeting of the Tallspruce community, saying:
“It’s time for me to be moving on”.
Porcupine asked, “Where will you be going?”
Raven said, “Where cedar roots stand bare in the creek.”
A hush fell over the circle. Grouse could be heard sniffling.
At last Porcupine asked, “Do you have any last words for us?”
Raven said, “Trust.”
