notes on Pan June 2009

Chapter The First

An impossible task did he set for me
With a glint in his eye from across the sea:
“Oh American Lass please write me a song
Of the goat-footed god with his fur grown long.
Not too sad now, and not too sweet
Just give me a picture of dancing feet
Diaphanous maidens in gowns to their feet
Circling round this Oldest One
With bells and flutes and beating drum.”

“I want to feel the beat and thrum
One with my heart – our hearts as one”
Said he with a laugh so teasingly
This lad from a wildwood across the sea.

The SHE said:
“I can’t write this crap”
As she threw her notes and her book in her lap.
This ancient god would never survive
On an earth filled with castles he could not thrive.
Part man part beast part deity-
Too many parts for totality.
A goat in the reeds by a river?

PAN
Chapter the Second

Full moon rise, insects call
Heat of day is not at all.
Sweet young lovers quietly
Walk alone by grass and arching tree.
As if in Eden’s nighttime shade
They stroll along so unafraid.
Oh city man! By love enthralled
Your modern castle is no good.
When met at night by horn and hoof in
God’s lost deepening wood.
Draw close your lover lest she as well
be stolen away by a deeper spell.
Sightings abound under full moon’s glow
Having caught the attention of those we know.
Of half man, half goat- which part is god? At night transformed
Tramping, tramping field and sod.
From man to goat, from calm to fright
Crazy laughter fills the night.
Running wild his disguise he sheds
Left on the ground by the flowerbeds.
Civilization’s thin veneer
Cast rudely aside with a grunt and a sneer.
Then out he comes, Earth’s truest beast
Snorting air, searching out the night.
He waits for morning’s orchid light,
For then the cruel nature’s ravishing heart
Is left alone and does depart
For something else –
Curling horns, hoofs, legs adorned – loved by nymph, (by man is scorned)
Player of flute and pipes is he.

So who would think a goat could play?
Who would think – a god!
And who could think this god would be
Protector of animals small and wee?
For I have seen him dancing round
His horns a-curled and his nostrils flare
Whilst carrying a babe in arms –
Small, wounded, lost and unaware,
Yet snuggled tight in papa’s hair.
Warmed by breath of beastly god
A-dancing on the morning sod.
Making music with the reeds from the river.
