The Quivering Poplar

It happened long ago, very long ago in an era when the testimony of witnesses is unreliable and events are known only through stories. The story I am going to tell you happened in the depths of the dark forests on Mount Zvijezda (Star Mountain).

Covered in dense forest, of birch and poplar, beech and oak, and, further up, fir trees and spruce, and pines and junipers, Mount Zvijezda would have the appearance of a sleeping girl with thick, shiny, well-combed hair – if there were higher mountains nearby to view it from the right perspective.
