GABRIEL, WILT THOU ANSWER ME?

 

Gabriel, wilt thou answer me?
What is this, the vision I see?
A bird, a girl, a summer tree--
a locked image -- hand me the key!

Says Gabriel, Archangel old:
"Listen now, for thou wilt be told!

"She is the fairest of the fair
The Bride of Christ, with golden hair
The tree, a Kingdom in the air
The bird is you -- thou wilt be there!"
