From 2Anne:
A darkness settles on memories
Man’s shame displayed for all to see
Son of God betrayed
This is how it has to be
Then light before the dawn as our Saviour rises in glory
An impossible thing but the truth stays with the story
A promise of salvation as precious blood is shed
But the Christ of God lives on
He is not dead
Reflect on this event and pray to the Lord your God
His love remains on earth though man deserves it not
© 2Anne

Easter will be celebrated
in later April this year
Whenever it's celebrated
one thing is certain and clear
Whether it be early or late
it's a time for reflection
or should be for us all
remembering Christ's resurrection.
Amongst all the cute bunnies,
eggs, candies and those things,
we must all never forget
the Life of which each angel sings.
There's a Promise of Life
for believers a Life anew.
Christ died and rose for that Life
for each of us for me and you.

Very nice LFF. The retail have turned the festival into bunnies etc. I had trouble finding any religious cards but finally did in supermarket. Message of Easter seems lost on general public.

I believe the baby chicks, little bunny rabbits, colored eggs, etc
are the commercial world's way of taking Christ out of Easter.
Same with Christmas.

A very poetic reminder, Lightfoot.

2Anne, to my mind, your Easter poem is a true witness of our Lord and Saviour.
Amen

Easter

    His Apostles Jesus warned
     That to him would come great harm
     His heart he poured out in the garden
     But Peter's heart seemed to harden
     Caesar's soldier, he did fear
     With a sword, he smote his ear
     But Jesus loved this bleeding man
     Forgiving with his healing hand  
     Christ surrendered willingly
     From those in power, he didn't flee
     A crown of thorns upon his head
    Yet no defensive word he said
    They whipped his back, drawing blood
    Before Pilate, he quietly stood
    Herod simply washed his hands
    "I find no fault in this man"
    Peter denied our Lord three times
   Then he realized his crime
   They nailed him to the shameful cross
   For all our sins, he paid the cost
    "It is finished" His final plea
    "Father, why have you forsaken me"

    He arose, defeating death
    All will live whom He has blessed

Love your poem Joyous. Thankyou.
I always find Easter sad. It’s shameful and we should be begging the Lord for forgiveness. The Romans crucified Jesus and then Rome hijacked Christianity. I’ve yet to hear an apology from them. The Jews too were culpable and even now in denial. Strange that they reject the most popular and loved Jew in history.

2Anne, thank you.
I enjoy your poetry and all the others.
I just can't seem to find the flow I once was gifted with. Maybe the Lord will renew me.

Thanks for all these wonderful poems about Easter. Easter is a hard time for me. I lost both my folks within a two year time around Easter. But I know they're both in a better place now.

Margie, I understand how you feel.
Knowing this is approximately the time our Saviour gave up Himself for your loved ones, for us, may console you.
Bless you.
