The Cristina Rossetti poem comes to sparkling life, concluding with a canon repeating “Herself a rose, who bore the Rose.” The piano has its own motif, first presented as the introduction, then as short interludes between verses. Melodic interest is present in all parts making this a singer’s delight.

Herself a rose, who bore the Rose,
She bore the Rose and felt its thorn,
All Loveliness new-born
Took on her bosom its repose,
And slept and woke there night and morn.
Lily herself, she bore the one
Fair Lily; sweeter, whiter, far
Than she or others are:
The Sun of Righteousness her Son,
She was His morning star.
She gracious, He essential Grace,
He was the Fountain, she the rill:
Her goodness to fulfill
And gladness, with proportioned pace
He led her steps thro’ good and ill.
Christ’s mirror she of grace and love,
Of beauty and of life and death:
By hope and love and faith
Transfigured to His Likeness “Dove
Spouse, Sister, Mother,” Jesus saith.

by Cristina Rossetti
