THE BLESSED DAMOZEL


THE blessed damozel leaned out

From the gold bar of Heaven;

Her eyes were deeper than the depth

 Of waters stilled at even;

She had three lilies in her hand,

 And the stars in her hair were seven.


Her robe, ungirt from clasp to hem,

 No wrought flowers did adorn,

But a white rose of Mary's gift,

 For service meetly worn;

Her hair that lay along her back

 Was yellow like ripe corn.
