Taurus Goddess ~ Demeter Demeter’s tears scorched the earth,
For Persephone’s lost, beyond birth.
When the land remembers the sweet smell of spring,
Demeter’s reign will come to an end.
Demeter is the Greek grain Goddess, later known as the Roman Goddess, Ceres or Kore. Demeter is often portrayed in mourning for her daughter Persephone, who had been abducted by Hades, God of the Underworld. Demeter’s weeping causes summer to end permanently until Persephone returns along with the changing seasons.
