The Trees

As it broke the earth it called to Mordius, for all things that grew in the earth were known to her. She came to the tree and marveled at it and she loved it and took the greater store of her wisdom and poured it as water upon the roots of the tree, so that the water pooled all about it spreading through the valley in lakes. Later they were named the Pools of Green. The tree drank of her, and embodied all that she saw, knew and understood of the world.

Fed thus, the tree sprouted green across its broad limbs and boughs and the leaves soaked in the world's youthful sun in all its glory, drinking of the power of Erde as it lay in all things.

~The Codex of Aihrde
