„In Arcady there lies a crystal spring
Ring'd all about with green melodious reeds
Swaying seal'd music up and down the wind.
Here on its time-defaced pedestal
The image of a half-forgotten God
Crumbles to its complete oblivion.“

Pan-Worship and Other Poems (1908)

Its early-spring timing is perfectly right.
With wind it drifts in all through the night.
Silently it's drenching everything in sight.“

Down in the reeds by the river?“

Контексте: What was he doing, the great god Pan,
Down in the reeds by the river?
Spreading ruin and scattering ban,
Splashing and paddling with hoofs of a goat,
And breaking the golden lilies afloat
With the dragon-fly on the river.
