                Come dance in the garden
                     with Lilith and Pan.
                          There's a lord for each lady,
                               a maid for each man.
                The sound of their piping
                     will banish all care.
                          Come dance in the gardens--
                               they wait for you there.
                Come dance with each stranger,
                     and love one, perchance.
                          A faint wisp of danger
                               is lost in the dance,
                For a cool breeze will pardon
                     each maid and each man
                          That dance in the garden
                               With Lilith and Pan.

                Now evening flows in
                     and the dusk-shadows rise,
                          but we still are drawn on
                               by the sparks of his eyes.
                There are creeper and vine
                     our swift feet to ensnare,
                          but we twirl on, enmeshed
                               in the swirl of her hair.
                We weave to their power
                     and crush underfoot
                          each grass-blade and flower,
                               each thistle and root.
                Cicada and cricket
                     all join the pavane
                          as we dance in the thicket
                               with Lilith and Pan.

                Now the two lead us on
                     to the depths of the wood,
                          While our hands start to stray
                               and our kisses draw blood.
                With thigh and breast pressing
                     their flesh-hungry claims,
                          we circle, caressing
                               the rim of the flames.
                The flames toss and flicker,
                     they weave their web higher,
                          they whisper and snicker
                               of lust and desire.
                It's high time for turning,
                     escape, if you can,
                          or dance in the burning
                               with Lilith and Pan.

Hi Ted,

Glad to see you submit this one. As I recall, it was one of the first poems I read and fell in love with when I first joined the PIP family. Also glad to see you edited so we can vote.

Thanks,
Pete
