A meditation on Hildegard of Bingen, Doctor of the Church

Most noble
evergreen with your roots
in the sun:
you shine in the cloudless
sky of a sphere no earthly
eminence can grasp,
enfolded in the clasp
of ministries divine.

You blush like the dawn,
you burn like a flame
of the sun.

~From O Nobillissima Viriditas

Don't ask me where the evergreen went!
