Beltane Songs for Maypole Dancing and the Sacred Marriage

Beltane Songs for Maypole Dancing and the Sacred Marriage May 3, 2017

Beltane is in full dancing swing, and just in time for your reels and jigs around the Maypole, I present to you two brand new Beltane songs, just written by our coven’s newest initiate: Epona Petra (1).
Enjoy!
~Heron

Ding-Dong! The Witch Is Wed!

A Beltane Feasting Song, with Bells
By Epona Petra
(Sung to the tune of “Ding Dong the Witch is Dead” from the Wizard of Oz soundtrack)

Chorus:
Ding-Dong! The Witch is wed!
Which young Witch? The Goddess Witch!
May Queen and her May King.
Our Gods of Spring are wed!

Join hands and celebrate!
Pass the ale!  I’ll have some too.
Pass the meats! Where is that pie?
With joy we all congregate.

Chorus:
Ding-Dong! The Witch is wed!
Which young Witch? The Goddess Witch!
May Queen and her May King.
Our Gods of Spring are wed!

Their union is Divine
Bringing life to crop and field,
Ram to Ewe, Boar to Sow,
All lives grow, both yours and mine.

Chorus:
Ding-Dong! The Witch is wed!
Which young Witch? The Goddess Witch!
May Queen and her May King.
Our Gods of Spring are wed!

Beauty wakes in the Earth
Flowers bloom and  pollinate
Goddess blooms, the God grows strong
Wheel’s turning now to happy Birth.

Chorus:
Ding-Dong! The Witch is wed!
Which young Witch? The Goddess Witch!
May Queen and her May King.
Our Gods of Spring are wed!

Beltane Maypole Song

(to the Tune of Pop Goes The Weasel)

By Epona Petra

Chorus:
Around, around the Maypole we go
To join the Gods together
With ribbons red and ribbons white
The two unite forever.

Their love is joy and we are here
To join it and to pump it
This sex is love and love’s Divine
And we can help to jump it!

Chorus:
Around, around the Maypole we go
To join the Gods together
With ribbons red and ribbons white
The two unite forever.

From God and Goddess all life flows
And so the joy of Being
Bring life to bud, to bird and fawn
Creation we are seeing.

Chorus:
Around, around the Maypole we go
To join the Gods together
With ribbons red and ribbons white
The two unite forever.

For growth in us, we ask the Gods
Beltane’s spell of Making
We freely dance for Spring’s delight
The energies are waking.

Chorus:
Around, around the Maypole we go
To join the Gods together
With ribbons red and ribbons white
The two unite forever.


  1. Actually, We will be holding Epona Petra’s initiation rites on the exact Friday night of astrological Beltane, at our weekend sabbat camp-out tomorrow. Epona is a fiery pistol of a Witch with a gift for whipping out ritual poetry and songs at just the right moment to create some sincerely effective magick–especially through laughter. Her sense of reverent whimsy and soulful mirth are a great gift that is worth sharing with the greater Witching Community.  I hereby name her our “Shenanigator in Chief!” I feel certain that she’ll take off from these gates of initiation like a rocket and do great things in the world!
