Demeter, Demeter in your eye a tear
You wonít see Persephone until next year
Demeter, Demeter, please have no fear
Sheís gone to be with Hades, the one she holds dear

Deep in the fields where the grain grows so tall
Standing next to the stalks I feel so small
We look at the leaves and watch them all fall
We give thanks to the Grain God for giving his all

The light and the dark are balanced again
The next time it happens? Ostara, Ďtis when

The days will grow short and the nights will grow long
Merry we meet and sing a harvest song

Iím shedding the bad and collecting the good
  picking up acorns as I walk in the wood

I think of the harvest and the year that has passed
I give thanks for the abundance that I have amassed

Demeter, Demeter, donít shed a tear
Be happy your daughter is with the one she holds dear
Demeter, Demeter it wont be so long
She will return with the robinís first song
This is the time of the dying God who will be born  again at Yule.  We bid farewell to the God and look to Crone for wisdom.  This is the time when Demetor bids farewell to her daughter Persephone as she joins her love Hades in the underworld, to return to the Earth once more in  the spring.

CRONE
BY NANCY VENUS

CRONE DEAR CRONE TO YOU WE COME HOME
WE ARE THE CHILDREN WHO LIKE TO ROAM
INTO YOUR CAULDRON WE WILL RETURN
UNTIL WE ARE READY TO COME OUT AND LEARN

CRONE DEAR CRONE YOUR WISDOM IS KNOWN
WE ONCE WERE LITTLE AND NOW WE HAVE GROWN
CRONE DEAR CRONE MANY SEEDS YOU HAVE SOWN
WE THANK YOU FOR WISDOM THAT IS OUR OWN.
