Myths about spring
In Greek mythology, Persephone was the daughter of Zeus and Demeter, the goddess of fertility. She was a charming young woman kidnapped by Hades, who ruled the underworld, and she was forced to become his wife. Zeus tried to help the young woman and negotiated with his brother, Hades, so that he would free his daughter because when she is with her mother, the trees bear fruit, and everything turns green.
