Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 1973
parsimonious, unmask, sylvan, moue
On the final leg of your journey, as the trees grow thick, you will meet a dour dwarf, pacing interminably about his sylvan lair, muttering strange lyrics of dysphoria (louder at the hour's turn) from underneath his shroud of leaves: approach him slowly, walk as he walks, be parsimonious in your greeting for he will surely not relinquish the key to a blabbermouth, and don't dare unmask him, for even a single glimpse of his moue would deflate the mood of the steeliest hero, sending that unfortunate witness searching the forest in vain for a pep talk.
