THE MADONNA DI SAN SISTO


And He, Whom Lord of love and life we hail,
 Is on her bosom borne, a blossom fair;
The pentecostal breath that lifts her veil
 Has fanned His royal brow, and stirred His hair.
 And kissed His lips just parted for a prayer.
That spirit-wind shall blow, that Face shall shine,
Till all His brothers know their Father's Sign.


Dresden : 1883.
