Easter Wishes


How can the day be dreary,
How can the heart be sad;
How can the soul be weary
When all the winds are glad ~
When every bud is leaping
Triumphant from its bed;
When March is spent and sleeping
And Summer is just ahead?

There's joy among the flowers,
There's glee upon the hills;
There's laughter in the showers
 That swell the leaping rills.
 There's gladness in the hedges
Where happy songsters wed,
Exchanging lovely pledges
With Summer just ahead.

There's joy in every cluster
Of reeds upon the slope;
Each morning puts new luster
Upon the shield of hope.
Why should a heart beat sadly,
An eye look out with dread,
When all the woods ring gladly
And Summer's just ahead.

Blessed Easter greetings to you and yours.
May your heart be light
And full of Joy.

~ Jolene
