1 April 2018: Resurrection Sunday
Today at last with certitude we know
that Morning is as beautiful as song
despairs to sing, as canvas fails to show
in hues that always get the colors wrong.
This Sunrise is the dawning of the New
immune to age and ever Young and yet
as Ancient as the hour when first the dew
descended ere our father sired regret.
Now night has passed and winter, too, and storm
gives way to calm and spring and noon and all
that is has donned a blessed fresher form
of Home unneeding bar or gate or wall.
Both earth and Heaven glory in the Sight
revealed by Life and Love of endless Light!
