Today is the day, where in Swedish folklore, witches went to party with the devil and stuff… So thematic acrostic?
Nothing Christian in this poem, sorry.
Old holiday based partially on ancient folklore and partially on some Christian based traditions, the nice mix to be expected in my part of the world. Walpurgis Night is a favorite holiday of mine.
Today’s “Walpurgisnacht”, or “Valborg” as we call it in Sweden. It’s associated with a number of things, like witches, mischief and also the arrival of spring. I thought it appropriate to post a poem about nature and old folklore about nature on this day.
