The Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary

"The rod of Jesse hath blossomed; a virgin hath brought forth God and man: God hath given peace, reconciling the lowest with the highest in Himself. "

--Numbers 17. 8

To a phantom

What is there behind the mask?
I think I know; you've shown me
more than eyes can see, much more.
My heart cries out to yours; I know
that you can hear it. And the song
I long to sing for you echoes in
the distance that's between us.
