Spiritual Quote of the Day (Christina Rossetti, on a Star and ‘The Song of the Angel Throng’)

“Beyond all clouds and all mistiness
I float in the strength of my loveliness;
And I move round the sun with a measured motion
In the blue expanse of the skyey ocean;
And I hear the song of the Angel throng
In a river of extasy flow along,
Without a pausing, without a hushing,
Like an everlasting fountain's gushing
That of its own will bubbles up
From a white untainted cup.”— English poet Christina Rossetti (1830-1894), “The Song of the Star,” originally published in 1847, republished in The Complete Poems, edited by R.W. Crump (2001)
