Easter Fill The Space - Poem by James Tipp

The empty tomb wherein all mystery lies
The empty space defying all to look and learn.
Some seek a way to fill the space with people,
The Jews who came and stole the body,
Yet kept their silence when all around cried
‘Empty! Risen! Emmanuel!
Or fill the space with Romans,
Whose power could silence all.
They like mute swans,
Make no sound to challenge.
Yet blame could fall upon his followers
Intent on what?
Running from the living,
Would they die for a corpse?
The tomb stands empty, calling all
To look and learn.
Fill the space with God and the answer is,
“Why look for living among the dead? ”
