The Divine Creation of God: Ovillejo

The divine creation of god,
you are grace of lord,
enchanting one and all.
Playing different roles,
of sister, daughter, wife, mother,
caring for us and others,
imparting strength further.
Precious of all the humans,
you the divine woman.
You are grace of god playing different roles, caring for us and others.
The "ovillejo," an old Spanish verse form that means "tight little bundle." ". The last line is a "redondilla," a "little round" that collects all three of the short lines. The rhyme scheme (aa bb cc cddc) is established, but the meter is at the poet's discretion.
