Guide to Virtues and Worlds

Faith is a loyal Wife.
Charity is a Mother.
An ardent mother, noble-hearted.
Or an older sister who is like a mother.
Hope is a little girl, nothing at all.
Who came into the world on Christmas day just this past year.

Who is still playing with her snowman. . . .
And yet it’s this little girl who will endure worlds.
This little girl, nothing at all.
She alone, carrying the others, who will cross worlds past.

As the star guided the three kings from the deepest Orient.
Toward the cradle of my son.
Like atrenbling flame.
She alone will guide the Virtues and Worlds.

One flame will pierce the eternal shadows.
