|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!
