Happy Easter

Because of His resurrection, all the earth rejoices.
We sing songs of praise to You, O Lord.
You are the Victor; Life has triumphed.
Children are like blooms, you know.
Fragile and sweet,
they steady grow.

In my heart are planted four.
Seedlings at birth;
but pledge of more.

Each spring I'm amazed to see
The growth in them;
the loss in me.

Blossoms for my Easter time,
The planting God's;
the tending mine.
-- VQ

  3. Spring is not my favorite time either, especially since both my children turn a year older in spring, a sign I too am aging. I love the poem you wrote, may have to use some of it in my scrapbook if you don't mind, of course I will site the source.
