EASTER FLOWERS, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: We are his witnesses; out of the dim
Last Line: Stands flooded with light of the new-risen sun!
Alternate Author Name(s): Father Tabb
Subject(s): Easter; Flowers; Holidays; The Resurrection

We are His witnesses; out of the dim,
Dank region of Death we have risen with Him.
Back from our sepulchre rolleth the stone,
And Spring, the bright Angel, sits smiling thereon.

We are His witnesses. See, where we lay
The snow that late bound us is folded away;
And April, fair Magdalen, weeping anon,
Stands flooded with light of the new-risen Sun!
