Demeter, mistress of vegetation,
of the seed resting within the black soil,
of the changing seasons and their pleasures,
of food and flower, field and furrow,
of rich harvests given or withheld,
all at your will, all by your sturdy hand,
I thank you for your many gifts,
for the many years of survival,
of life granted us by your kindness, goddess.
Demeter, loving mother of Persephone,
mother by marriage to stern Hades,
you show us what is most important,
where lies the true substance of our lives.
Necessary goddess, I honor you.
