The Maiden Is Death

The Maiden Is Death
by Charles E S Fairey 

The Maiden and her cowl
Coloured black covered with rose,
Symbolising death and her love
Libra and her scales, deathly blouse. 

St Mary the White and Red rose
Her Son’s blood pentagram red,
The Rosy Cross his eternal life
The five petals his wounds bled. 

  Her Son the Lily of the Valley
The lily bright sacred white,
The Rose of Sharon or Charon
Death to Resurrection The Light. 

Lord of the Gates of Death
And zodiac Magdelene with stinging tail,
The Maiden and her black rose
Signifying death without fail. 

  Eve and Adam turning white rose red
Mary with Godly Sire,
Innocence born again
Born under star above Kingly byre. 

  The Maiden dressed in black
Rose designs covering her clothes,
The Libran woman, mother of Christ
From who all life flows. 

  Aries is her rosy heart
The animal she does adore,
Her Son the Lamb of God
The ghostly spirit she bore. 

  For the Maiden is Death
Her Son is life everlasting,
Woman is infinite existence through death
Man is immortal spirit through be-lieving. 

  Farewell to the lovely peace
The withered white rose,
Death of innocence consumed by love
And again Maiden’s Saviour rose. 
From the sleepless grave
Yet again walking here,
Upon these blood red petals
The Angels watching near. 

  The innocence of a child
The love of a Warrior,
The Maiden’s son a majestic sire
The love of her heart, her Saviour. 

  The Son of the Rose
Whether Black, White or Red
Upon the World cross he bled
For he is the Maiden’s Son,
The Rose of Charon
The Symbol of Life, Death and Resurrection.
