Persephone

When the world was
Reawakening
Vernal shoots through soil were
Breaking
Reaching
And commiserating with
The winter dead they
Passed

When pastoral dew
Vaporising
Hung as mists on forests
Trembling
Wandering
And nebulous they
Saw her gliding
Past

When the pull it felt
Overpowering
Was her earth song calling
Rousing
Tempting
Floral memories life
Touched the sky
Again

Yea Springtime came
Appreciating
Leaves and petal whorls
Unfolding
Drinking
In her radiance as she
Walked once more with
Men

Then Summer woke and
Recognising
Demeter would be
Coming
Turning
Springtime left Persephone
And sank into the
Ground

Where now it drowses
Reminiscing
No more petals no more
Blessing
Sleeping
Until called for by
The Queen of Spring so
Crowned
