Last Line: Oh, would that men had understood!
Subject(s): Easter; Holidays; Jesus Christ; Resurrection, The; The Resurrection

It comes again—the Eastertide—
And wakes to pulsing life all things
That sleep; once more beside the tomb,
Mankind its reverent vigils keep;
And wondering eyes behold
The angel form; the garments lie;
And hear celestial accents clear
Proclaim: He is not here!
Death holds Him not—nor could—
Oh, would that men had understood!
