A Fountain of Gardens

A vision of wisdom

There came upon me an overshadowing bright cloud, and in the midst of it a Figure of a Woman, most richly adorned with transparent gold, her hair  hanging down, and her face as terrible as crystal for brightness, but her countenance was sweet and mild.  At this sight I was somewhat amazed, but immediately a Voice came saying, "Behold, I am God's eternal Virgin, Wisdom, whom thou hast been enquiring after.  I am to unseal the Treasures of God's deep wisdom unto thee."
