XV Easter Dawn
He blesses every love which weeps and grieves

And now he blesses hers who stood and wept

And would not be consoled, or leave her love’s

Last touching place, but watched as low light crept

Up from the east. A sound behind her stirs

A scatter of bright birdsong through the air.

She turns, but cannot focus through her tears,

Or recognise the Gardener standing there.

She hardly hears his gentle question Β‘Why,

Why are you weeping?’, or sees the play of light

That brightens as she chokes out her reply

Β‘They took my love away, my day is night’

And then she hears her name, she hears Love say

The Word that turns her night, and ours, to Day.

Malcolm Guite

    1. Hi Vahid, Easter is the time of year when we Christians believe that Jesus Christ rose from the dead, having been nailed to a cross and killed by the Romans 3 days previously. It’s always the day of greatest rejoicing for the church throughout the world.
