Poems in Honor of the Nativity of the Theotokos

The All-Consuming Fire within her
Like the burning bush she remained

Mary, Christ Our Lord's mother
Despite Him within her, she is the same

Our Lady, burning with the presence of God
Within her blossomed the Flower of Jesse's Rod

Jacob's Ladder in human form
A crown of stars her head adorns
The burning bush prefigured her
She gave her flesh to the Savior
More honorable than the Seraphim
And more glorious beyond compare than the Cherubim
She is truly Theotokos, we magnify her

May God bless all who read my ramblings,
