The wish of pearl



Mother, I shall weave a chain of pearls

for thy neck with my tears of sorrow. 

The stars have wrought their anklets of light to deck thy feet, 
but mine will hang upon thy breast. 

Wealth and fame come from thee and
it is for thee to give or to withhold them. 
But this my sorrow is absolutely mine own, 
and when I bring it to thee as my offering

thou rewardest me with thy grace. 



        Pearl is an elegy for a dead child, a daughter who died at just two years of age. She is the ‘pearl’ of the poem’s title, and the poet uses this image for her throughout. After he falls asleep, his spirit is transported to a bright and  Pearl poem wonderful land. On the other side of the stream by which he stands, he sees a beautiful maiden, dressed in white, a symbol of purity, and wearing pearls – the spirit form of his lost daughter. Telling him that he should not grieve for her death, the maiden reminds the poet that though the earthly form dies, the spiritual form will be kept.

        Traditionally, the prayer hands of the Catholic Roman rites are crossed hands and thumbs crossed, so in the mass, the priest usually does.


        The important thing is two points: First, whether the gesture we use comes from the heart of devout love, whether we are in the heart and hope to communicate with God; Whether our gestures help ourselves and others to get close to God and go to the deeper prayers, which means that the gesture itself expresses respect, enthusiasm, and so on.
