Plea to Demeter

Is it the end of winter that makes the spring come? 
Is it the beginning of spring that makes winter end?
Demeter, it is up to you to let your daughter rise. 
Let her push the green shoots through the black soil. 
Your tears of diamonds sparkle on the earth
They keep it sleeping beneath this blanket of cold. 
The world grows weary of winter
I long to see spring again.
