I love everything about Easter, the pastel colors of spring flowers, marshmallow peeps, the brightly colored eggs, children in new spring clothes, but most of all the end of winter-which is always a gloomy time for me. Just when it feels it will never end, another spring arrives. I was searching for a poem or something to express my feelings about it, and found this which I never have heard; but think is so pretty:
The fasts are done; the Aves said;
The moon has filled her horn
And in the solemn night I watch
Before the Easter morn.
So pure, so still the starry heaven,
So hushed the brooding air,
I could hear the sweep of an angel's wings
If one should earthward fare.
~Edna Dean Proctor, "Easter Morning"
I wish everybody a wonderful day filled with sunshine, children, church, and chocolate!
