Easter poem

What is this day all about?
Hiding eggs for kids to rout?

Cakes and cookies shaped like lambs?
Pink chapeaus on pink madams?

That's not what it is all about!
Who got buried? Then got out?

Leaving no one any doubt,
"He is Risen!" hear them shout!

THAT is what this day is all about!

Easter time

A calendar is filled with days to which we must adhere
No matter how you use them, they still add up to a year

Each month we celebrate with love some very special day
There's Christmas in December and Mother's Day in May

Tho, Father's Day comes round in June, He labors in September
And April has a special date that all fools will remember

With each July the rockets fly in tearful, proud recall
Then August, so grandiose in name, has no good days at all!

November doth remember every veteran with Thanksgiving,
But blessed of all is Eastertime, which gives the gift of living!
