persephone-praxidike:

Hail, Persephone Karpophoros!
O divine queen
You bring life forth from the earth with your touch
And all nature rises at your holy name
You are the heartbeat of the earth
All life springing up as you rise
Forever you travel between two homes
Chill and heat
And so we follow you
We grow and die
Our cycle endless
All creation at your divine whim
I praise you, o greatest lady
My queen of spring
Ruler supreme of all that lives and dies
Infinitely cruel and merciful
Most divine goddess
Ever I adore you
Ever I marvel at your work
Death feeds life
And all is reborn at your hand
