]- When Easter Time Comes Around.
Easter time has come around.
Eggs are scattered all over the ground.
Kids with baskets are running about.
Making parents scream and shout.
In and around and behind the trees.
Under the flowers that make you sneeze.
The eggs are hidden near and far.
Around the house and under the car.
Plastic ones with surprises of all kind.
The only time when you can find,
Chocolate bunnies that weigh a pound.
Is when Easter time comes around.
] - Easter Egg
Where'd you put it?
I can't find it.
I've waited all day
trying not to peek.
As you hint the way,
this will take a week.
I cannot find.
What a bind.
I think and think
And it comes to me..
My cheeks turn pink.
It's behind that tree!
How could I have missed?
The colors, oh so vibrant colors.
Oh, what it must consist!
I hope it's some dollars.
With a slight twist,
Comes a loud POP!
My tiny hand, becomes a fist.
It was nothing but a gumdrop!

] - Easter
I know it's Easter time again,
I feel it in the air.
The breath of spring with woodsy tang,
And new life everywhere.
And spring glides on with magic touch
O'er mountain side and glen
And wakens all the sleeping plants
For Easter time again.
The brooklets leap from rock to rock,
As if in joyful play
The flowers peep from darkened tombs
To welcome Easter Day.
The birds are swinging on the boughs,
And trill in ecstasy
They seem to show the world's great joy
Of Easter mystery.
Why should we dread
the thing called death?
It's just an open door,
Where all within is love and peace
And joy forever more.
"Because I live, you too shall live,"
We hear the Savior say.
Let's consecrate our lives anew,
On this glad Easter Day.
