Poems For Easter

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Easter is right around the corner – the time we celebrate the birth, life, death and especially the resurrection of the Lord, Jesus Christ. To help get everyone in the mood for this special spring holiday, I have some Easter poems to share including one Easter acrostic and an Easter haiku. All these poems are copyrighted by by Kathryn E. Darden and not available for reprint without written permission.

Easter Acrostic – Eternity Held Its Breath

E ternity held its breath
A nd sent the Holy Child:
S avior of all the earth,
T o God’s will reconciled,
E nsnared by bonds of death –
R esurrected undefiled.

Easter Haiku

Easter morning dawns.
Behold the empty chamber:
Jesus is risen!

Wonder – An Easter Poem

Was it an ordinary day? Were shepherds in the field

with sheep idly ambling through Judean grass?

Did children play in the dusty streets? Were mothers baking bread,

mixing, pounding, stirring, doing ordinary tasks?

Did sweethearts share a chaste kiss in the olive grove’s deep shade?

Did merchants weigh their shekels while beggars asked for alms,

emaciated hands extended in hopeless pleas for aid?

Did the day drag by in ennui under the desert palms?

Or did the rocks sing of an empty tomb

while children and beggars danced

in the joyful streets of Jerusalem?

For Easter: Faint Ray of Daylight – An Easter Poem

Faint ray of daylight announces the dawning,
Lights the horizon, filling the sky.
Gone is the darkness, banished the shadows;
The sun has risen and reigns on high.

Faint ray of hope through the night of the ages –
Dawn of a greater Light, Lord Adonai.

Gone is the darkness, banished the shadows;
The Son has risen and reigns on high.
