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.”

3. Awakening 

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

Dear friends,

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

hyacinthine freshet

of the unnamed

the faceless

6. Light

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.

19. Victory

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.
