Summary Stanza 1 In Heaven, the "blessed damozel" leans out over a gold railing. Her eyes are as deep as the calm evening sea. She holds three lilies, and her hair is adorned with seven stars.   "The Blessed Damozel" is perhaps the best known poem by Dante Gabriel Rossetti, which was first published in in the Pre-Raphaelite journal The Germ.

The damozel could also see the souls ascending from earth like flames to God. The damozel still continued to bow down and lean on the golden bar so that the bar must have received the warmth of her bosom.
