The Lunasa Song

Waiting to fall back asleep, I found myself improvising The Lúnasa Song à la Adam Sandler's Hanukkah Song:

Chant the Witch's Rúnasa

every year at Lúnasa.


Don't act like a goonasa

just because it's Lúnasa. 

Fortunately, I soon fell asleep.

For which the gods be praised.

 O. J. Simpson:

not a pagan, either.

Poet, scholar and storyteller Steven Posch was raised in the hardwood forests of western Pennsylvania by white-tailed deer. (That's the story, anyway.) He emigrated to Paganistan in 1979 and by sheer dint of personality has become one of Lake Country's foremost men-in-black. He is current keeper of the Minnesota Ooser.

    I figure the song "John Barleycorn" is appropriate for Lammas.

    Traffic's cover of "John Barleycorn" was, for a long time, the only pagan song that I knew. I sang it over and over, and never got tired of it.

    Years later, with literally hundreds (if not thousands) of pagan songs tucked under my cincture, i still feel the same.

    And a close second must be "Corn Riggs," of course.
