Easter Song (for my daughters)



Take this as a sign of faith, little sister

pouis have begun to blossom again

flaunting their gaudy petals against the highway’s stain,

those empty spaces where turkey buzzards gather,

in the yearly round of loss and gain.


Take this as a sign of faith, little sister

Easter lilies have defied the lies of winter:

endless days of blight, misery, and pain,

flowers revived by brief morning rain.

Take this as a sign of faith, little sister
