Cybil, the goddess of the sky, loved looking out at the flowers.
Cassius, the god of stars, was Cybil's father. Cassius was always angry, so one day Cybil decided to find a way to make him happy. She decided to show him the flowers.
That night Cybil took Cassius to her favorite cloud to view the flowers. When he saw the flowers he screamed in such a way that all could hear. He was in the worst mood he’d ever been in.
The next day Cassius arrived with Ioke, the goddess of nature. Cassius told Cybil that he told Ioke what he thought of her creations. He said that he told her he would punish her if she didn’t kill the flowers, grass, and trees. Ioke threw her hands toward the ground, and slowly everything died.
When Cassius was gone, Cybil went over to Ioke to tell her some great news. She said to Ioke, “We don’t have to keep the plants dead.” Ioke looked confused, so Cybil explained to her that Cassius only came down during the winter.
They came up with the idea that they would only kill the plants when Cassius came to visit. Everyone was satisfied with the decision, and life went on happily. This is why plants die during the winter.
