Smileful stanza from Belloc

Pious Ladies Bookmobile acquired a nice old Catholic school English textbook, from The Pageant of Literature series. It's called A Book of Poetry, by Sister Teresa Clare, S.C. I forgot how cool it was to read a literature text that includes Catholic authors.

The poem, Our Lord and Our Lady by Hilaire Belloc, caught my fancy. Here's the last stanza:

They laid Our Lord in a marble tomb,
Dead, in a winding sheet.
But Our Lady stands above the world
With the White Moon at Her Feet.
