A poem of Persephone (from my book):
By the way- Summer's Goddess is Diana with Her bow, and the mourning Goddess is of course Demeter.

Autumn's Time :
Persephone Descending

Swiftly did the season change
Life transmute and rearrange.
Smokey haze of plum and rust
Turns the leaves to red and dust.
Summer's Goddess hands Her bow
To someone whom you all should know:
She who enters darkened paths
Was once a little girl who laughed.
Seeds so red were planted deep -
She who laughed began to weep...


Persephone- where are you now?
Beads of sorrow stain the brow
Of thy fair Mother
Once so strong.
Soon She'll sing a mourning song.
All creation joins Her sadness
Turns from joy, and hides from
gladness.


Oh! 'Tis Autumn's time my Sweet.
Hades joins you in retreat.
Cloak thyself in yellows and browns,
Follow leaves that tumble down.
Seek the Earth, seek the path
That stilled a little girl's small laugh.
The Underworld will welcome Thee.
You will sit beneath the Tree,
Beside the loom of Fate and Chance
And rule the Dead who never dance.
The gloom of Hades mighty hall
Will wrap you in its drowsy thrall.
Learn the lessons there you'll find
Test the soul and train the mind.
Look into the mirrored pool
Be now wise and not the fool.
Face thy darkened self and learn
As the leaves begin to turn.
