A new dawn of freedom? May it be so

Even in this artificial shift of time

According to those calendars and clocks

Who still attribute virtues to old Janus


For this is Mary’s day, especially so,

This last day in the Octave, now at dawn

And She is our new Dawn of freedom given,

Our Porta Caeli, Bearer of Our Lord


Now with the light we rise to greet the Light

A new dawn of freedom – and it is so
