Goddess of the Harvest

Goddess of the Harvest

Demeter is your name

You are also known

as the Goddess of the Earth

by those who know your fame

🌑

Lost was your daughter

Persephone, from your union with Zeus

Your grief brought famine

until Zeus sent Hermes

to make a much needed truce

🌑

The grief of your loss

delivered winter to Earth

The abundance of spring

and summer

a sign of your joy and rebirth

        We ‘did’ mythology at school when I was 11. First, Greek and straight after Roman – forever muddling up all the names in my head!
        So, yes, it was very nice to read your poem and remember some names. 😀
