ÆGINA'S foam is high and wild
Where Pan immortal sits enisled;
But thou and I with flying oar
Seek Psyttaleia's sacred shore.

The City of the Violet Crown
Well knows that rocky island's frown;
But thou and I together learned
What fires upon her altars burned.

Oh, many a sail goes gleaming there
Bound for some olive-garden fair;
But thou and I made fast to her
And found her cypress lovelier.

The shrines of Aphrodite lift
Their smoke in every village-rift;
But thou and I remote from man
Propitiate the woodland Pan.
