Paraphrase: Three people were hung and ravens ate their eyes. People were afraid to go to Upton Wood. The ravens ate the bodies. The first was crazy; the second asked God for help and the third was a young boy. The boy was guilty by association and it has not been to long since he was hung. No one liked to go there except one girl. She see their ghost. She died and now she dances with the young boy. She was the daughter of the sheriff who hung the three people.
