A secret word that Hera found
Pan scattered, just for fun.
Your quest: restore the severed parts
Then celebrate. You're done.
But should you seek the letters here
By Zeus, you'll not get one!

    $\begingroup$ @Deusovi It doesn't make sense to close this as a duplicate of the other when by the author's own admission the other one was flawed. Why not VTC the original instead? meta.stackexchange.com/questions/147643 $\endgroup$ – GentlePurpleRain Feb 19 '16 at 15:43

    $\begingroup$ @GentlePurpleRain: Good call! I always forgot that you can close duplicates in the "wrong" order. I'll retract my close vote here and VTC the other. $\endgroup$ – Deusovi Feb 19 '16 at 15:51

This version made the hint a little more obvious.

There are three letters that don't appear at all in the poem: I, M, X.

Anagramming these, we get MIX.
