"The Miracles of Easter"
The sleeping earth awakens,
the robins start to sing -
The flowers open wide their eyes
to tell us it is spring.
The bleakness of the winter
is melted by the sun -
The tree that looked so stark and dead
becomes a living one.
These miracles of Easter,
wrought with divine perfection,
Are the blessed reassurance
of our Savior's resurrection.
I do enjoy her poems and as we all probably do, I appreciate spring.
As a Christian I put my hope in Easter, and I think all of us like this season. I understand that Passover begins at sundown on Monday so this is a doubly joyous week.
In future posts I will chat about the wonderful book I am reading, "The Six Wives of Henry VIII" by Antonia Fraser, and show some photos of what is going on in my garden.
Happy Spring to All.
