The Announcement


 


full of grace


what kind of greeting this


pondered She


 


so humble was this maiden


exalted to the ultimate


 


state of  womanhood


Mary


mother of the Word


 


highly favoured for


the mystery of redemption


 


I have no relations


with any man


was her meditation


 


the Holy Spirit would


sew the seed of salvation


 


Gabriel assured her


Emmanuel


He shall be named


 


Because of God’s promise


God’s plan fullfilled
