The myth of Demeter and Persephone

The Seasons

by Demetria Blouin

Demeter,
Gooddess of the Harvest
Hades stole daughter, Persephone

Zeus decides
If no food, she'll be freed
But, six pomegranate seeds she ate

One month each.
Demeter's forced consent
Her revenge is the Winter and Fall

The myth of Demeter and her daughter, Persephone. Every fall, when Persephone returns to the underworld, Demeter ignores the crops and flowers and lets them die. Each spring, Demeter brings everything to life again, ready to welcome her daughter's return. To the ancient Greeks, that was the reason for seasons - winter, spring, summer, fall
