Autumn Fire

The bush which Moses saw burning yet unconsumed was a sign of your wondrous virginity. Mother of God, intercede for us!
We chant this verse to our Blessed Lady at the close of Vespers, and now we see our prayer embodied in an autumn tree ablaze with color, as it dies in this most beautiful of ways.
