Spring at Lourdes

It is the last week of Poetry Month, but the All About Mary website contains wonderful poetry for the whole year. The following poem was taken from Poems about Apparitions

Spring at Lourdes

In the clefts of the rock the dove,
In the hollows of the wall
The beautiful one, my love,
Comely, slender, and tall.

The flowers at last in our land -
Sandaling slim white feet,
The voice of the turtle, and
A voice that is strange and sweet.

Here let the heart abide,
For winter is over and done
Where Heaven is opened wide
On a woman clothed with the sun.

– Sister Mary St. Virginia
