Mary in Orthodox Poetry

Nice poetic imagery describing the relationship of the Virgin Mary to God the Father in the incarnation of the Word (from the 8th Canticle of Matins for The Sunday of the Paralytic ):

 In days of old Isaiah beheld you, the Ever-Virgin,

As the book in which the timeless Word

Was written by the finger of the Father!

He saves us from all senseless lack of reason,

As we sing songs of praise to you with holy words!
