Demeter, the goddess of agriculture,
rescued her only daughter Peresphone
who had been abducted by the god of Underworld.
But she was bewitched to stay in Underworld
for four months every year.
When chilly wind takes her away after harvest,
Mother Falls into a deep sorrow.
Thus cold winter comes.
How earnestly we hope spring to come soon !
