1. An Easter Offering
Poet: Caris Brooke
Dear Lord I have no Easter flowers to bring,
No roses fresh, nor lilies dewy sweet,
Yet still one offering I may gladly bear
And lay rejoicing at Thy dearest feet.
Enfold my weary love in Thy sweet will,
And keep it closely to Thy pierced side,
So shall I rest, nor sad and helpless mourn.
While safe in Thee my love and I abide.
2. Jennifer Hayden
“Easter morning bright and fair
Tells me of God’s loving care.
Flowers that were gone from view,
Now awakening, bloom anew.
Though God’s face I do not see,
I will trust His care for me.”
Poet: Margaret Elizabeth Munson Sangster
Never yet was a spring-time,
Late though lingered the snow,
That the sap stirred not at the whisper
Of the south wind, sweet and low;
Never yet was a spring-time
When the buds forgot to blow.
Ever the wings of the summer
Are folded under the mould;
Life, that has known no dying,
Is Love’s, to have and to hold,
Till sudden, the bourgeoning Easter!
The song! the green and the gold!
4. Dear Friends
Poet: Mary Bissell Waterman
The Easter tide is near.
May the comfort it imparts.
Descend like the very peace of Heaven,
Into your longing hearts.
5. Easter Morning
Poet – Amy Clampitt
a stone at dawn
cold water in the basin
these walls’ rough plaster
after the hammering
of so much insistence
on the need for naming
after the travesties
that passed as faces,
grace: the unction
of sheer nonexistence
upwelling in this
of the unnamed
Poet: Ernest Warburton Shurtleff
Lift up your heads, ye sorrowful! Behold,
The dawn of Easter floods the hills with flame!
The sun burns like the light of God’s great name,
Where heaven’s blue courts are flushed with blushing gold.
Let day break in thy heart and be consoled!
Oh, let no more the night thy gladness claim.
Let Hope arise from out thy doubt and shame,
As Christ, from death, rose glorified of old.
Thy spirit is a breathing of thy God,
Pulsating in its chrysalis of clay.
The dust that tires thy feet that onward plod
Is of the night, but thou art of the day.
Oh, let henceforth that day from Him grow fair,
And thou shalt hold an inner Easter there!

12. Inspired by Jan’s Bunny Can Bang All Night Limerick
I’ll give you my best diagnosis
Your bunny has caught a psychosis.
His drum bangs so loud
It disperses the crowd
But at least it’s not myxomatosis*.
13. Easter Bunny’s Demise
The Easter Rabbit had a spat with his wife
She said the dumb eggs were ruining her life
Laying eggs is so boring
Then there’s your snoring
He met his demise with her carving knife…
14. Snow Flakes and Easter Lilies
Snow flakes and Easter lilies scatter the ground
Winter time and Spring time seem to be having a round
Like a game of tug of war each side wants control
Today it was winter who wanted to rock n roll
Tomorrow maybe Spring time will give it a heave ho
Guess we won’t know till tomorrow though
15. ode to marshmellow peeps
Marsh mellow peeps
a wonderful treat.
Yellow pink or blue
all of them stick like glue
on easter , christmas or even halloween
I like peeps and pass on jelly beans .
Some have said they can cure the common cold
others say it reminds them of yellow slime mold
what can I say ?
it doesnt matter to me either way
but personally my favorite type is
the ones you put in the microwave oven
and watch as they bubble, pop and fizz
16. On Easter Day — June Masters Bacher
“On Easter Day the lilies bloom,
Triumphant, risen from their tomb;
Their bulbs have undergone rebirth,
Born from the silence of the earth
Symbolically, to tell all men
That Christ, the Saviour, lives again.
The angels, pure and white as they,
Have come and rolled the stone away
And with the lifting of the stone,
The shadow of the cross is gone!”

17. Easter Hymn
Poet: Charles Wesley
Christ the Lord is risen to-day,
Sons of men and angels say:
Raise your joys and triumphs high,
Sing, ye heavens, and earth reply.
Love’s redeeming work is done,
Fought the fight, the battle won;
Lo! our Sun’s eclipse is o’er;
Lo! He sets in blood no more.
Vain the stone, the watch, the seal;
Christ hath burst the gates of hell!
Death in vain forbids His rise;
Christ hath opened Paradise!
Lives again our glorious King:
Where, O Death, is now thy sting?
Once He died, our souls to save:
Where thy victory, O Grave?
18. Good Friday
Poet: Christina Rossetti
Am I a stone, and not a sheep,
That I can stand, O Christ, beneath Thy cross,
To number drop by drop Thy blood’s slow loss,
And yet not weep?
Not so those women loved
Who with exceeding grief lamented Thee;
Not so fallen Peter, weeping bitterly;
Not so the thief was moved;
Not so the Sun and Moon
Which hid their faces in a starless sky,
A horror of great darkness at broad noon –
I, only I.
Yet give not o’er,
But seek Thy sheep, true Shepherd of the flock;
Greater than Moses, turn and look once more
And smite a rock.
Poet: Francis Pott
The strife is o’er, the battle done;
The victory of life is won;
The song of triumph has begun.
The powers of death have done their worst,
But Christ their legions hath dispersed;
Let shouts of holy joy outburst.
The three sad days are quickly sped;
He rises glorious from the dead;
All glory to our risen Head!
He closed the yawning gates of hell;
The bars from heaven’s high portals fell
Let hymns of praise His triumph tell!
Lord by the stripes which wounded Thee,
From death’s dread sting Thy servants free,
That we may live and sing to Thee!
20. A Song Of Life
by Mrs. J. H. Knowles
Bloom, Easter lilies fair!
Out of the dust arisen,
From the deep darkness under the sod
Quickened to life by the touch of God,
Oh! tell it abroad with your fragrant breath,
Life is forever victor of death.
Ring, happy Easter bells!
Ring from each temple tower;
Tell it again where the story is old,
Tell it afar where it never was told,
Oh! tell it abroad with jubilant breath,
Life is forever victor of death.
Sing, grateful soul of mine!
Sing till they hear in heaven;
Song sweeter than that of blossom or bell,
For joy beyond all that angels can tell,
How the Life Divine with quickening breath
Hath made thee forever victor of death.
