once i read a book called The Dark Wife by Sarah Diemer about a lesbian hades and persephone. it was really pretty and i think hades would write something like this for her love. but probably she'd write something prettier.

she's so lovely,

persephone, with a smile that summons forth the spring
'tis not the season, it is you that causes birds to sing

the sun lingers when you're near, it is infatuated
by the awestruck silence that your presence has created

i'll attempt capturing in verse, how your beauty takes my breath
and hope these words suffice, from a simple god of death
this could be a stanza from the song jolene
(it's you that causes birds to sing
your smile summons forth the spring
and i cannot compete with you, jolene)
further proof that the song is gay? perhaps

    I love the lines "the sun lingers when you're near, it is infatuated
    by the awestruck silence that your presence has created" Just so beautiful.
