I begin to sing of Demeter, the holy goddess with the beautiful hair.
And her daughter [Persephone] too.
The one with the delicate ankles, whom Hadês seized.
She was given away by Zeus, the loud-thunderer, the one who sees far and wide.
Demeter did not take part in this, she of the golden double-axe, she who glories in the harvest.
Homeric Hymn To Demeter – Translated by Gregory Nagy
