Mark Humble - Waiting For Persephone

from by Various Artists



My entry is based on the ancient Greek mythological story of Demeter and her daughter Persephone.


Cold gray wind
Across the sky
Steals the earth
Demeter cries
Winter shivers endlessly
Waiting for Persephone

Mother Earth
Grows nothing
Daughter gone
Til Spring
Shrouded in a frigid veil
Waiting for Persephone

Mother dreams
Grateful tears
Melting ice
When child appears
Sweetly spring will bloom again
With golden green Persephone
