Demeter’s Lament

Jamie Kim
Persephone, Persephone,
Oh, Persephone, will you
return to me?

Persephone, Persephone,
I am cold and broken,
bones brittle without your
breath of life.

Persephone, Persephone,
Oh, Persephone, do you
regret eating
the pomegranate?
Did it bruise your lips?

Persephone, Persephone,
Oh, Persephone
I should have not have
taken your life. Persephone,
Persephone, forgive me.
Come back to me. 

Demeter: Greek goddess of harvest
