Pogoda is in Slavic mythology the name of a god of the spring and of fine weather. Pogoda is a pure Slavic word, and means weather. He is supposed to have been of a kind and amiable disposition-the god of sunny weather, of bright skies, of smiling springs; yet the qualification of dobra (good) would seem to be necessary in such a case. The description given of his exterior appearance is perhaps still less authentic than that of his functions: young and beautiful, crowned with blue flowers, blue wings on his shoulders, clothed in a blue garment interwoven with silver, stretched on a bed of flowers resting quietly in the bright air. It is not likely that the Slaves one thousand years ago could have drawn such pictures of their gods.
