Song of Syrinx

can we hide from true love...

furled petals of lilac
revealed so tenderly
ancient story about
emotions of love...

Pan, the Greek god of forest
chased Syrinx, the nymph,
captivated by her beauty.

Known for chasity nymph,
scared by desperate affection,
turned herself into bush
at the near river's edge.

Inconsolable god
cut the reeds,
made the first set
of pan pipes,
which was named Syrinx.

Seems, the meaning the same,
which one image is closer:
purple lilac,
the song of Syrinx,
eternal Love ?
