I begin to sing of rich-haired Demeter, awful goddess --
of her and her trim-ankled daughter whom Aidoneus rapt away,
given to him by all-seeing Zeus the loud-thunderer.

 Apart from Demeter, lady of the golden sword and glorious fruits,
she was playing with the deep-bosomed daughters of Oceanus
and gathering flowers over a soft meadow, roses and crocuses and beautiful violets, irises also and hyacinths
and the narcissus which Earth made to grow at the will of Zeus
and to please the Host of Many, to be a snare for the bloom-like girl -- a marvellous, radiant flower.

It was a thing of awe whether for deathless gods or mortal men to see:
from its root grew a hundred blooms and it smelled most sweetly,
so that all wide heaven above and the whole earth and the sea's salt swell laughed for joy.
