WITH PIPE AND FLUTE

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 air 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 !

AUSTIN DOBSON.
