References in classic literature ?
Ah, Phoebus," said Ceres, with bitter meaning in her words, "you have a harp instead of a heart.
But Ceres shook her head, and hastened away, along with Hecate.
Poor Mother Ceres had now found out what had become of her daughter, but was not a whit happier than before.
There was nothing, now, in which Ceres seemed to feel an interest, unless when she saw children at play, or gathering flowers along the wayside.
So Queen Metanira ran to the door, with the poor wailing baby in her arms, and besought Ceres to take charge of it, or, at least, to tell her what would do it good.
So Mother Ceres set her torch in a corner (where it kept burning all the while), and took up her abode in the palace of King Cereus, as nurse to the little Prince Demophoon.

One night, therefore, she hid herself in the chamber where Ceres and the little prince were accustomed to sleep.
She now turned to Mother Ceres, and asked her to explain the mystery.

While she dwelt in the king's palace, Mother Ceres had been so continually occupied with taking care of the young prince, that her heart was a little lightened of its grief for Proserpina.
Now, as not so much as a head of asparagus ever presumed to poke itself out of the ground, without the especial permission of Ceres, you may conceive what a terrible calamity had here fallen upon the earth.
