Poem for the Feast of the Assumption

Happy Feast of the Assumption! On this beautiful day I am sharing with you a poem that I have written in honor of Our Lady. May the Blessed Mother surround all of you with her joy and love on this Solemnity of the Assumption of Mary.







Mystical Rose
Wrapped in her mantle;
a cape of bright blue
with gentle eyes and long dark lashes
her fiat radiates the truth.

Glistening through the colored window glass
the sunbeams sparkle
and create the most magnificent dance.

The branches bend of the little linden tree
as the raindrops tenderly trickle down
with the leaves swaying in the breeze.


A sprig of rosemary and
white satin petals twirling in the wind,
she is the mystical rose;
the crimson blossom of Nazareth.

A garland of roses;
the fairest flower at her feet,
as she bathes in His heavenly light
the kiss of the angels touches her cheek.

The sweet scent of nectar permeates the air
as the bees hum softly
with the dew of honey dripping down
and the wings of a dove fluttering in the wind.

As a brilliant golden ray pierces her Immaculate Heart
the blue butterfly brushes against the bed of bulrush.
The calm, tranquil waters crawl towards the shore
as the Star of the Sea shines upon the silvery sand.

The rod of the root of Jesse
springs forth the burst of bloom.
She is the Mother of God,
blessed is the fruit of her womb.

"Always stay close to this Heavenly Mother, because she is the sea to be crossed to reach the shores of Eternal Splendor." -- Saint Padre Pio
