To Goat-Footed Pan

Amanda Aremisia Forrester

Goat-footed Pan, I sing
Lusty satyr, son of Hermes
(or sometimes Zeus Himself)
Chaser of women,
Inspirer of panic
Who haunts the wild places of the world
Ithyphallic one,
Lover of Bakkhos’s vine,
And of subtle nymphs.
The dancing God
Playing His flute.
God of shepherds,
The bearded one.
Horned God,
Hear my prayer
Expansive spirit of the wilderness
Grant me the freedom
The joy
That fills Your heart.
