With Pipe and Flute
Dobson, Austin (1840-1921)

  With pipe and flute the rustic Pan
  Of old made music sweet for man;
    And wonder hushed the warbling bird,
    And closer drew the calm-eyed herd,--
  The rolling river slowlier ran.

  Ah! would,--ah! would, a little span,
  Some aire of Arcady could fan
    This age of ours, too seldom stirred
      With pipe and flute!

  But now for gold we plot and plan;
  And from Beersheba unto Dan
    Apollo's self might pass unheard,
    Or find the night-jar's note preferred,--
  Not so it fared when time began
      With pipe and flute!
