From the recording Acoustically Inclined

Lyrics

Persephone
Words and Music by ©Norine Braun
Recorded live at Crosstown Studios
Engineer: Allan Rodger

The river flows underground
Crone stand and wipes her brow
She is wiser than the world would know

She sees thought Hades eyes
And hears to her surprise
Demeter crying for her daughter dear

Persephone picked the flower bright
Dark Earth swallowed her out of sight
Persephone picked the flower bright

The river flows underground
Crone hears the hidden sound
She is singing the maiden’s song.
Chorus

She knows both the living and the dead
Rules where others fear to tread
Accepted the fruit and then she returned to sky

Welcomed by daylight in Earth mother’s arms
Spring returned, forever youthful her charms
Still no one would risk to speak her name

chorus
