Persephone and Demeter

Storyboard Text

  • Don't wander too far
  • What wonderful flowers!
  • Mother!
  • Have you seen my daughter?
  • No, but I heard some screaming when my pigs disappeared. My pigs!
  • Here, have a pomegranate
  • Tell Hades to let my daughter go, or the Earth will suffer my grief.
  • Hermes! Go get Persephone from Hades!
  • Zeus has demanded you let her go!
  • She has eaten the Food of the Dead!
  • She must spend as many months with Hades as she has eaten seeds.
  • And that is why, when Persephone is with Hades, we have Fall and WInter and when Persephone is with Demeter, and Demeter's happy we have Summer and Spring
