Witches of Walpurgis Night

Walpurgis Night” was also known as Hexenbrennen, the burning of the witches.

Seid reinlich bei Tage
Und säuisch bei Nacht,
So habt ihrs auf Erden
Am weitsten gebracht.

Be pure by day
And swinish by night,
thus have theirs advanced
furthest on the earth

(Paralipomena 50 zur Walpurgisnacht im Faust
Addendum 50 to Walpurgis night in Faust)
