Pan and the Maiden

by Sparrowgael

Age Group: Adult

Pan and the Maiden

He saw her dancing in the moonlight,

soft grass damp beneath her feet;

long hair swaying with her movement

to the drummer’s steady beat.

He saw the Goddess called within her;

he saw the Magick in her light.

He longed to join the dance beside her,

he longed to lie with her that night.

He gazed upon her striking beauty

bathed in moonlight’s silver glow,

Ah, but how could he let her see him?

How could he let her know?

She smiled coyly at his advances,

and tossed her hair back from her face,

and then was caught up with the dancers

as another took his place.

He was aware, in that one moment,

of the horns upon his brow

and of the fur upon his shoulders

so as he looked at her he vowed

that if she could not love him

just exactly as he stood

that he must find ways to convince her

and he promised that he would.

He thought of soft, engaging music

and of his lips upon her mouth;

he thought of endless hours of passion

enveloping them both.

But no sooner had he thought it

then the enchantment had been done;

with Ladon’s intervention

transformation had begun.

All at once, where had stood beauty,

on the ground by cloven hoove,

in a spot where none had placed it

lay a shepherd’s reeded flute.

He retrieved it from the meadow,

cradled in his powerful hand,

and he screamed unto the heavens

his heartbroken reprimand.

Then to his lips he placed it;

a neglected lover’s kiss,

drew in breath as if to whisper

that he’d wanted more than this.

The syrinx answered with a soft,

resounding whisper of her own;

the Zephyr’s voice was now within her

and with Pan she’d found a home.

Now he keeps her with him always,

with her voice he charms the trees;

sends a message to the sparrow,

calls the gods upon the breeze.

In this form she’s always with him,

living for his gentle touch,

and she will stay with him forever

because she loves him very much.
