DANTE GABRIEL ROSSETTI

THE GIRLHOOD OF MARY VIRGIN

rossetti s comments in a letter to charles lyell
ROSSETTI’S COMMENTSIN A LETTER TO CHARLES LYELL

“It belongs to the religious class which has always appeared to me the most adapted and the most worthy to interest the members of a Christian community. The subject is the education of the Blessed Virgin. In order, therefore, to attempt something more probable and at the same time less commonplace, I have represented the future Mother of Our Lord as occupied in embroidering a lily,—always under the direction of St. Anne; the flower she is copying being held by two little angels. At a large window in the background, her father is seen pruning a vine. There are various symbolic accessories which it is needless to describe”

This is that blessed Mary, pre-electGod's Virgin. Gone is a great while, and sheWas young in Nazareth of Galilee.Her kin she cherished with devout respect:Her gifts were simpleness of intellect And supreme patience. From her mother's kneeFaithful and hopeful; wise in charity; Strong in grave peace; in duty circumspect.So held she through her girlhood; as it wereAn angel-watered lily, that near GodGrows, and is quiet. Till one dawn, at home,She woke in her white bed, and had no fear At all, - yet wept till sunshine, and felt awed;Because the fullness of the time was come.

These are the symbols. On that cloth of red I' the centre, is the Tripoint, - perfect eachExcept the second of its points, to teach That Christ is not yet born. The books (whose headIs golden Charity, as Paul hath said)Those virtues are wherein the soul is rich: Therefore on them the lily standeth, whichIs Innocence, being interpreted.The seven-thorned briar and the palm seven-leavedAre her great sorrows and her great reward.Until the time be full, the Holy OneAbides without. She soon shall have achievedHer perfect purity: yea, God the LordShall soon vouchsafe His Son to be her Son.
