1. Goddess of Spring and Underworld

2. Persephone was the beautiful greek goddess who was the daughter of Zeus and Demeter (Goddess of the Harvest). She was picking flowers one day when Hades, god of the Underworld, saw her and fell instantly in love with her. He then abducted her and took her to the Underworld with him (other interpretations say he raped her, but I don't think so). She was clearly not happy there since she missed her mother and wanted to go back home. He agreed to this and tricked her into eating a pomegranate. She ate six seeds of the pomegranate which bounded her to the Underworld for six months (fall and winter) and the other six months she spent with her mother (spring and summer). She later became Hades' wife which gave her the title of Queen/Goddess of the Underworld.

(This is only one of the Hades and Persephone interpretations)
1. I think the Persephone really did love Hades.
2. I think the story of Persephone is very romantic.

Persephone is a lovely girl with a big heart. She's shy at first but once you get to know her, you'll end up loving her. She is drop dead gorgeous and every guy would gawk at her. Only one man could steal her heart and make her his. She's a powerful and vibrant girl, almost like goddess.
Guy 1: Wow...she's so beautiful. Do you think she would ever go for a guy like me?
Guy 2: Keep dreaming, that's Persephone. Everyone want her to fall for them.
Guy 1: *sighs* She's a walking goddess. Any guy who gets her would be so damn lucky.

Persephone was once the greek goddess of spring (then called Kore) but was raped by Hades and became the Queen of the Underworld.
Poor persephone, she had so much going for her.

This is a short period of time in the middle of winter where the temperature gets unnaturally warm.
