From the Oak: Let’s hear it for the God!

Many are those that focus on female divinities, leaving male divinities in the shadows if they get mentioned at all. This is a shame. Here I will share my thoughts, stories and prayers on male divinities. Currently focusing on divinities placed in an atheist "graveyard".

Prayer to Pan

I recently read about honoring Pan at this time of the year and it really resonated with me.  I am not only Hellenic but also a mountain dweller so this fits within my path so nicely, I'm surprised I haven't stumbled across this idea before.  So below I offer a prayer to the Great Lord Pan, who is not dead, only harder to recognize in the madness of the modern world.




Pan, Lord of the Wilds, to thee I humbly call

By the Well, the Flame, the Tree, I honor thee

Oh Blessed Dancer you move from Season to Season

From frenzy to calm, from bright day to starry night

Weaving the universal song that frightens and compels

You are the refuge and cause of mortal fright

Whose joy is the gurgling brook, the chase pell-mell

And the dance of the nymphs in solitary glades

Fructifying Lord, Cave Lover, Temperamental One,

Hoofed and horned Commander of Elements

Guide of Nature and Bountiful Provider

I honor you at this time of subtle change

May the tune you play bring me more joy than panic

And minute changes be not lost in life’s frantic pace

From Season to Season, calm to frenzy, night to day

I honor thee and thy endless tune as the wheel turns.

Hail most gracious Pan!

    I think your poem is beautiful. I am curious if you have looked at the old poets odes to pan? It seems that ever since humanity has re-discovered the beauty of nature they have been writing odes to Pan. He encompasses both the beauty and mystery of nature, and speaks to all of the hearts who wish to reconnect with where we come from.

    Thank you. I have but this prayer is loosely based on the Orphic Hymn to Pan.
