The God and the Reed more
Pan, shown in this painting as a bearded and shirtless man with the legs of a goat, a satyr, sits back on a riverbank laughing; he holds a flute. In the river we see water-lillies and in the background silver birch trees.
“This is the way,” laughed the great god Pan,
(Laughed while he sate by the river)
“The only way, since gods began
To make sweet music, they could succeed.”
Then, dropping his mouth to a hole in the road,
He blew in power by the river.
(A Musical instrument.)
