Hmm, I read this and thought I would give it a go, and then I started to
examine the phrase "wooden meadow"...

Now a meadow is a field, but to me is brings to mind a small quiet
pretty field, with small animals and a light breeze. This is much more
than just a field.

Then when I move onto the full "wooden meadow" my mind goes wonky. This
brings to mind a small quiet pretty field... made of wood. 

So I would translate the concept with something along the lines of:

Sor Hap 'oHbogh yotlhHom tam'e'

A quiet smaller field that is wood. 

I wanted to use something like "made of" but I couldn't fine a word that

Any other ideas?
