What Easter Means to Me

kids with clothes as bright as sun
eggs and chocolate lots of fun
but Easter means much more to me
then all of this frivolity 

we condemned cursed sentenced Him
we scourged spit hung Him to a limb
our sins hung nailed Him to a tree
now there is life for you and me

He gave pure love from heaven above
laid down His life this beautiful dove
because He chose the tree you see
you and i can now be free

He did not cry He did not groan 
He knew three days He rolls the stone
He did it one time for eternity
conquered death for love for all you see

we no longer hunger no longer thirst
because His love removed the curse
He does not follow He takes the lead
Rejoice, Rejoice, HE IS RISEN INDEED!

    Sometimes the meaning of Easter gets lost in the egg hunts and baskets filled with chocolate. The miracle of the Resurrection is so joyfully expressed in your poem, Jeff. (My parents used to put a chocolate cross in my basket instead of a chocolate bunny because they wanted me to remember why we celebrated Easter.) Best wishes in the contest! Love, Carolyn
