Information:

"I am Ceres, the Goddess of golden grain, 

My bountiful largess I spread like rain;

Rich gifts I bring from the friendly soil

Where the patrons of husbandry sturdily toil.

I feed the hungry,

I clothe the poor,

I scatter my blessings from door to door

And carol with triumph 

my glad refrain:

I am Ceres, Goddess of the golden grain."
