Soft and blue are thy robes, my Mother,
Azure and clear as an angel's eyes -
Let me hide in them, oh, my Mother -
Radiant Queen of the summer skies!
Softly piled on the far horizon
Smoky white clouds drifting here and there;
These the border on your blue mantle -
Mother most holy......Virgin most fair!
Deep and blue and wide is the ocean -
Deep as the call of its peace to me;
Jeweled and shining.....
Thy veil, my Mother?
Thy silvered veil, oh Star of the sea?
Poem by Edith M. Stoney Robert
The first beautiful holy card is from Micki's collection at Holy Cards for Your Inspiration, one of my favorite sites on the internet; this second image of Our Lady Star of the Sea, I've had saved on my computer for quite some time and am not sure where I got it...
