Lady Day – the Eve of Eve’s recall
This night can’t hold or keep the angel lights
Who come the dawn, must peep about the Sun
As skylarks rise to sing with seraphim
To Him made man today; a tale begun
When Heaven cast its orders down to earth
And Gabriel’s flight outran day’s risen light.
“All Hail!” He said; as glory had its birth
And Eternal day cast off our endless night.
When Grace’s maid, made to embrace the light,
Let Light embrace a lightless Virgin’s womb.
Then Earth outshone the light of every star
And Death itself was buried in its tomb.
Recall with grace on Lady’s Day that dawn;
And blest be they that on this day are born.
