In a forest of May, you might meet the Old Man of the Forest wandering around and turning up in the shape of an elderly man. He would wear a hat of silver bark and coat made of moss and his face is hidden behind a mossy beard. He might take the shape of any bird or animal or he might also turn up absolutely invisible. A man can often only hear the sound of his foot steps, twittering as a bird or howling as a wolf. If the conscience of the person roving around is dirty, the Old Man might misguide him easily. If an innocent girl meets the Old Man in a forest, she will be sure to find herself the best possible husband in the future. If you happen to go walking in a forest in the month of May, be careful not to step on a bug nor kill any mosquito… because this creature might be embodied Old Man of the Forest.
