Our Lady of Guadalupe

Here's the original image which appeared on Juan Diego's cloak all those centuries ago.
I love the way artists have imagined her over the years:
by Rita Lloyd
by Christina Maria Romero
and all the plays about her appearance:
Here's a poem by Anne B. Quinn:
Dark lady, you smile at me across the mountains
The secret smile of ancient people.
What thoughts do you send me, dark beautiful lady?
Will you someday tell me when I come with great
armfuls of roses
Over the mysterious mountains to your feet?
Dear, dark queen will you give me too
Lovely roses in December?
