Dew Spread Over the Grass

"Bird Nesting in as Dew Settles," T. Stewart

“Bird Nesting as Dew Settles,” T. Stewart

 

From heaven, dew spread over the grass
and the whole earth delighted,
because her womb grew fruit
and because the birds of the skies nested in her.

—from O Viridissima Virga

Hildegard of Bingen
