Easter is risen

Easter, Easter
Happy trickster
Chocolate eggs
Juicing dregs.

Why the rabbit?
Is our habit.
And the cross?
Is at loss.

People party
Eating smarty.
Where’s the prayer,
Faith slayer?

T’is a season
Age of reason,
Words from Saviour
“Love your neighbour”.

Must remember
The world’s ember
Has yet risen
From death’s prison.

There’s true meaning
Heaven’s greeting
From our Father
And loving Brother.

Our true Easter,
Brother and Sister,
Is holy union
In communion.
