Persephone’s life Persephone, daughter of Zeus and Demeter. Demeter being goddess of harvest andZeus mighty god and possessor of lighting bolts. Persephone from the start of a youngage loved nature and was named goddess of spring growth, because when she wasaround her mother was happy and made flowers grow. She had two sisters Athena andAphrodite which she loved to have “play dates” with. Sadly she could not see them veryoften because they had different mothers, but the same father. One day when she wasin her teens, picking flowers with her friends, there was a giant hole in the earth andnone other than Hades, her own uncle came out. He captured her and took her to theunderworld to make her his queen. She was so young and beautiful that everyoneseemed to want her as there brides. When she was down there her mother mournedand searched the earth looking for her dear daughter. So Demeter had Zeus go look forher, once her had found her, it was to late, for it was too late. She had eaten Apomegranate in the underworld so she had to stay there. Her dad made and agreementwith Hades though, she had to stay in the underworld with him for half of the year andthe other half on earth, with her mother. The legend says when she is with her mother,she is happy and harvests all plant life. This means that it is Summer, and Spring. Whenshe is with Hades, her mother is sad so henceforth it is Fall, and Winter. This is thetheory of the seasons.

Hades did his best totry to make her happy, but the underworld didnot have much to offer for young Persephone.Eventually she had to get used to it, in fact shegot a little too used to it. She becameoverprotective of Hades and would not let himtalk to any other women. Persephone came as asweet young girl, but now people say she has“two sides.” Her mom said “She will never be thesame little girl I’ve come to know and love.” -Demeter
