A Poem for Easter

Hampton Court Palace Gardens

Easter Day
Spring crocus in fine vestments, white and gold
Line the winding pathway to the church, where
Worshippers have come since days of old
To celebrate Christ’s resurrection there.
The rough wood crosses stand uncovered now
And all adornments beautify anew
Among the fragrant flowers which take a bow
And candle light in spreading, dazzling hue.
And while the ancient stones resound in praise
In hymns of ‘Alleluia’, for at last
The light has overcome the darker days
And sin and death are banished to the past.
A flock of Daffodils dance with the sun
Fine adoration of the victory won.
