Resurrection - The Easter Story - Poem by Ernestine Northover

They slept, who should have guarded,
And watched over his tomb,
But he 'rose up' and none did see
His rebirth from this womb,
His spirit graced the garden,
His final act was done,
He was 'The Resurrection'
His victory had been won.

    Yes, this is how I love to see it portrayed, maybe the most important point in history so complex in it meaning that it needs a way to be able to reach the people in a more simplistic way, you have done this so well Erneatine, Another gem for your bowl, Love Duncan (Report)Reply

    This is very nice, Ernestine...The brevity and your choice of images from that day make it a really fine poem of Easter and victory over death.
