HILDEGARD VON BINGEN
O most honored Greening Force,
You who roots in the Sun;
You who lights up, in shining serenity, within a wheel
that earthly excellence fails to comprehend.
You are enfolded
in the weaving of divine mysteries.
You redden like the dawnHildegard von Bingen,
and you burn: flame of the Sun.
from Causae et Curae
