Smoking Hot Horned God Chant


Call of the Horned God

Blessings be with our ancestors!

May it be so!

Mother of Witches, Lady of the Moon!

I adorn my King!

 Lord of the Forests, King of the People!

Lord of Life and Death!

Life to the Horned God!

Life to us too!

Worthy of worship!

Worthy of praise!

He is coming!

He is rising!

Michelle Donner-Ramsay on the chant and its genesis:


Last modified on
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.

    The instinct to edit is deeply embedded. I rarely meet a text that (in my writerly opinion) wouldn't be improved by a tweak or two.

    Not this one, though. Not a word would I change. Not a word.
