Pomona's passion is for cultivated countryside. A Goddess of growth and
abundance, she symbolizes Autumn and all fruition through hard work. Apples
everywhere are associated with goddess worship. An apple cut sideways reveals a
Roman star of knowledge. Her name comes from the Latin for apple, pomum. Roman
banquets went "from eggs to apples," as a final invocation of Pomona's
by William Morris
"I am the ancient Apple-Queen
As once I was, so am I now.
Forevermore a hope unseen,
Betwixt the blossom and the bough.
Ah, where's the river's hidden Gold!
And where the windy grave of Troy?
Yet come I as I came of old,
From out the heart of Summer's joy."
