One Of My Old-Time Egyptian Poems

                                    PAN IN EGYPT

 

                                    He came with Alexander's touring army,

                                    Pulled faces at the dead who wouldn't rot;

                                    Dancing, he kicked up sparks among the temples.

                                    Queen Isis was amused and then entranced.

 

                                    On rocks beside the new town on the delta

                                    He sat and played the pipes.  The nations came

                                    To ease some itch or just to hear a lecture

                                    But one and all to fall in love with Greece.
