Eihwaz

Eihwaz is a long “i” sound, but it is rarely used in script.

Anglo-Saxon Rune Poem (from ragweedforge.com)

The yew is a tree with rough bark,
hard and fast in the earth, supported by its roots,a guardian of flame and a joy upon an estate

Eihwaz is the yew tree, one of the trees that embodies Yggdrasil, and the tree most often identified with the Underworld, and the realms of the dead. Combining those to symbolic qualities, it is a rune of connection, the secret and dark passages and influences that connect people, places and things, the occult bonds that speak of the Unity that exists, but is not always obvious to the untrained eye and untaught mind.
