Persophone was the daughter of Demeter. Demeter made the flowers blossom and the trees grow. Persophone loved nature. She loved nature so much that where ever she walked flowers who grow and birds would fly.
Hades was the god of the underworld. He had everything you could ask for except for a wife so he decided that he would take Persophone and make her his wife.
Hades was successful in capturing Persophone and he ade her is queen. No matter what food he offered her she wouldn't take it. She became sad and depressed and she missed her home.
Her mum, Demeter looked everywhere for her but she couldn't find her daughter anywhere. She became upset and the flowers began to die and the leaves on the trees fell. The air became cold and the sky dull. The floor became covered in snow and the land was miserable
Zeus, the God of all gods saw what was going on down in earth so he sent his finest messenger to Hades. Hades freed Persophone but as she was leaving he offered her seeds. Persophone took 3 seeds from Hades but little did she know that for every seed she took was how many times she had to go back Hades.
So because she had eaten 3 seeds this is when she had to visit Hades. So for this period of time she would leave. Her mother would dread the day she had to leave and once she was gone the flowers would die, the leaves would fall and the snow would come. And when she returned the flowers would bloom and the birds would chirp. This is the myth of how the seasons came to be.
