A good specimen of the master. "Hail Mary% at thy shrine/ Another pure flower blooms,/ Welcome to thee, with news divine, / The lily's faint perfumes;/ Proudly its stately head it rears/ Arrayed in virgin white,/ So Truth, amid a world of tears,/ Doth shine with vestal light."--LUCY HOOPER. [P. 31; see entry 01600004 for additional commentary accompanying this entry. A note at the bottom of the entry reads: "The lily blooms about Annunciation Day."]
