Aga MUNM April 25, 2014 Songs and music are often considered a universal language.

lives with Hades in the underworld as his bride, Persephone’s mother Demeter the Goddess of Seasons, goes into mourning and the earth experiences winter. When Persephone returns to the upper world, Demeter rejoices and the earth experiences Summer. ~ The defeated old man tainted grey and condemned by the world breathes his last breath and escapes his worldly torment.
