    Were shaken, and with them the mighty mount,
    Olympus trembled.

Creator Venus, genial power of love,
The bliss of men below, and gods above!

Thy mouth reveals the spring, and opens all the year;
Thee, goddess, thee, the storms of winter fly,
Earth smiles with flowers renewing, laughs the sky.

Full of spirit's melancholy
And eternity's despair!
And they heart the words it said--
Pan is dead! great Pan is dead!
Pan, Pan is dead!
