prayer to persephone

"Prayer to Persephone"

Be to her, Persephone,
All things I might not to be:
Take her head upon your knee.
She that was so proud and wild,
Flippant, arrogant and free,
She that had no need of me,
Is a little lonely child
Lost in Hell, --Persephone,
Take her head upon your knee:
Say to her, "My dear, my dear,
It is not so dreadful here."

- Edna St. Vincent Millay


a teeny little post to get things alive again; I'm going to try and do more in-depth posts soon!

Cool prayer, and gorgeous artwork.
I adore Persephone.

Me too!

I wish I knew who wrote that poem, but it was posted on the goddessesdivine community a while back without a source. :( I need to google-fu it.
