Jean François de Troy – Pan and Syrinx [1722-24]

IO Pan
IO Pan
Animal Man
Animal Man
Climb the roots
of the trees
Jump from dewdrops
off the leaves
IO Pan
IO Pan
Manimal Hands
Manimal Hands
In dark wood
Eternal Night
I dance for you by firelight
IO Pan
IO Pan
I summon you rise
from the land
Phallus divine
God in Man
IO Pan
IO Pan
Come as flesh
I wear your brand
IO Pan
IO Pan!
