Learning your ABC’s for pagan kids is fun and easy.
To learn your letters you must start by learning to spell.
With a clever mind and a willing heart learning of magic.
Each letter is special, just like you and every single one.
You can learn them all by the time that this poem is done.
So the spell begins as most songs do, as is above us, so it is below…
A is Athame, the knife that we use, as we invoke Aphrodite on our Altars
B is for Beltane, when partners we choose, but also Broomsticks by Bonfires
C is for Circle where we all are one, and Chanting under the Crescent moons
D is for Deosil, path of the Sun, when we pray to both Dionysus and Diana
E is for Esbat, when we gather round, and for the Energies and Elementals
F is for Fire and its crackling sound, but also for the Flora and Fauna
G is the Goddess in beauty and love, all that is Good and Green on Gaea
H is the Horned One, our Father above, but also for Hats on Halloween
I is for Imbolc, candles light the way, the smell of Incense before Invocation
J is for June when it’s Midsummer’s Day, singing John Barleycorn to a Jig
K is for Karma, the things that we do, and in the East for Kali and Krishna
L is for Lammas and Lungnasad festivals, but because Love is the Law
M is for Moon, riding way up so high, and the Muses and the Months of the Year
N is for Nighttime, which darkens the sky, but also Nymphs and Nature herself
O is for Ostara, when we hunt for eggs, and in Voodou it is for Obtala and Oshun
P is for Pan, with hairy goat legs and the symbol of the Pentacle and the Pentagram
Q is the Quarters and there are just four, the Queen of Heaven and Quetzecoatl
R for the Rites when we open the Door, the Rituals and our Reincarnations
S is for Samhain, end of the year, but also for the Serpents, and for some Satan
T is for Tarot cards, futures to hear, it is for Time and the Babylonian Tiamat
U is Undines from the watery West, the Underworld and all the Universe
V is Vervain for protection and rest, for Venus and the saint named Valentine
W is Widdershins, the path of the moon, but also for Witches and Warlocks too
X is the the letter that is a symbol like XOXO or where X marks the spot
Y is for Yule and the sun God returning, but also for Youth and the Yearly cycles
Z is the Zodiac, 12 signs to learn, from Zoroaster and the forgotten Zygurmist…
Which is someone that studies how to make magical ritual rites be more fun
To learn them all, all you have to do is try a little each day.
Now this is how we said goodbye in the ancient pagan days.
The Circle is Open but never can it be broken.
Merry have we met, and Merry have we been.
Merry shall we part and Merry meet again.
