Here you will find the Poem Blue and White of poet Mary Elizabeth Coleridge

Blue and White

BLUE is Our Lady?s colour, 
 White is Our Lord?s. 
To-morrow I will wear a knot 
 Of blue and white cords, 
That you may see it, where you ride 
 Among the flashing swords. 

O banner, white and sunny blue, 
 With prayer I wove thee! 
For love the white, for faith the heavenly hue, 
And both for him, so tender-true, 
 Him that doth love me!
