Seven nymphs enter. The faun, aroused, follows them and attempts to woo them. Ftightened, they withdraw; or has he but dreamed of them? But one has left her scarf behind. She has dropped it. The faun seizes it, goes back to his rock, and in his imagination, as he caresses the scarf, dreams that it is the nymph herself he caresses. The Faun M.
