Somewhere / not here

Demeter, the goddess of the harvest, lost her daughter Persephone to Hades in the Underworld. Her grief was so much that she made the land barren and wandered the world endlessly, searching for her daughter. Persephone was eventually allowed to return for certain periods of the year, which led to the creation of the seasons; Spring and Summer for when they were reunited and Autumn and Winter for when they were apart.
