Sophia has come :-
Hear the words
She uttered as I knelt before Her
Heedless of the storm and drowning rain :
“You have seen the curve of a rainbow –
I am come to complete the circle
And bring you joy”…
I have lain under my new colours
And bathed in their radiant fullness
While She smiled above me,
Her hand upraised in haunting peace.
Chaste Her mind, Her heart, Her soul,
For friends She has the creatures of the field…
Her peace guards the autumn winds from harm
And lingers softly in the green spring rain.
One look from Her clear-eyed Truth
And the sullen run like stags
Gladdened by the sunlight on a mountain range…

Thanks to the research of Madria Sophia. This poem, especially the quote, remind me so much of other apparitions of Sophia that have occurred, including to well known Russian mystics. Unlike the majority of Marian apparitions in which Mary gives very long-Catholic Church oriented speeches (which, many suspect were words coming from the Church authorities rather than the actual visionaries), and usually, Her visions are very closely tied with Sophia’s connection to Nature.
