Oh, sweet Daughter of Nature

Thrown down, down, down into the depths of the Underworld

Taken by force, so tempting of pure radiance

Residing on a throne of bleeding bones

Queen of screaming souls, innocence corrupted by shadows

Corralled in the tormenting land of freezing hellfire

Defiled by the Lord of the Dead

Tricked by cruel fate to taste the forbidden fruit

To remain forever a prisoner until wrapped in a mother's loving embrace

Weep not, Fair Maiden, for deliverance is at hand

By the kiss of a saccharine summer breeze
Oh my gosh, I have finally written something pertaining to my namesake (well, the latter half of it) on this website.

My favorite person in mythology. Persephone (Kore by the Romans), daughter of the goddess of the harvest, Demeter, and wife to Hades; kidnapped by said god of the Underworld, tricked by the gardener to eat the single seed of a pomegranate; and rescued by her mother so she spends the summers up on earth and the winters down with Hades. I could go in depth, since I know the legend by heart, but I will spare you the major details.

You have no idea how much I love her. I wish I could have lived in ancient Greece, just to become a devout follower of her. She's a role model of mine, to be truthful.

But this little poem does not do Persephone justice. However, it was the only thing I could come up with. I just wanted to at last show my love for her; maybe someday I'll make a better piece dedicated to The Maiden.

This story was always my favorite in Greek mythology, and honestly the only one I can always remember. I think this does pretty good justice to her, actually. c: 

Always love Greek mythology, and write about it as long as you want to. It's amazing, and this came out excellent.

This is beautiful. I absolutely adore it, and I always thought the tale of Persephone was an interesting and very intriguing one. It's probably my favourite myth.
