Ava Maria Plena Gratia

Rating: 2.9
WAS this His coming! I had hoped to see
A scene of wondrous glory, as was told
Of some great God who in a rain of gold
Broke open bars and fell on Danae:
Or a dread vision as when Semele
Sickening for love and unappeased desire
Prayed to see God's clear body, and the fire
Caught her white limbs and slew her utterly:
With such glad dreams I sought this holy place,
And now with wondering eyes and heart I stand
Before this supreme mystery of Love:

Before this supreme mystery of Love: A kneeling girl with passionless pale face, An angel with a lily in his hand, And over both with outstretched wings the Dove. /// where the full of pure love is existed there is supreme achievement of life is existed; love though the belief and loyal surrendering can offer everything where hope works as the pure confidence in every trustworthy mind; great poem certainly

A beautiful poem ends so beautifully: 'A kneeling girl with passionless pale face, An angel with a lily in his hand, And over both with outstretched wings the Dove.'

Great poem. Oscar Wilde sounds wild but he tells the truth. People have a fantastical concept of God but He exists in simplicity. The basic instinct of life. So pray build golden churches wear expensive robes and create your own cults exclusive to your tribe but you will find God (though i dont know why we look for Him) ..that in love is where God is. Everytime there is love God exists. He is love.
