Passion Flower (Passiflora)
Art thou a type of beauty, or of power, Of sweet enjoyment, or disastrous sin? For each thy name denoteth, Passion flower! O no! thy pure corollas depth within We trace a holier symbol; yea, a sign Twixt God and man; a record of that hour When the expiatory act divine Cancelled that curse which was our mortal dower. It is the Cross! Sir Aubrey De VereA Song of Faith. Devout Exercises and Sonnets. The Passion Flower.
