Hildegard von Bingen was a Christian mystic living from 1098 to 1179 AD

Viridissima Virga:

Hail to you, verdant rod
that burst forth in the rush of the wind
out of sacred prayers.
When your time had come
to blossom on all your branches
the word rang out:
Hail to you,
Hail to you
The sun’s warmth trickled into you
like the fragrance of balsam.
