Happy Easter

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!

I'll go for the sunshine. One out of four is not good but sunshine carries bonus points.

That long without the sun is most gloomy. I don't know how you Northwesterners do it. Happy the sun is shining for you now.
