THE ASSUMPTION, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Who is she that ascends so high
Last Line: Flames with flames t'unite.
Subject(s): Mary. Mother Of Jesus; Women In The Bible; Virgin Mary

Who is she that ascends so high,
Next the Heavenly King,
Round about whom Angels fly
And her praises sing?

Who is she that, adorned with light,
Makes the sun her robe,
At whose feet the queen of night
Lays her changing globe?

To that crown direct thine eye,
Which her head attires;
There thou mayst her name descry
Writ in starry fires.

This is she who in pure womb
Heaven's Prince remained;
Therefore in no earthly tomb
Can she be contained.

Heaven she was, which held that fire
Whence the world took light,
And to Heaven doth now aspire
Flames with flames t'unite.
