Easter is considered a Christian holiday that celebrates the resurrection of Jesus, which Christians believe occurred on the third day after his crucifixion, around 33 AD.

However, many secular cultural elements have become part of the holiday. Nowadays in America, Easter is frequently associated with bunnies, baskets, colored eggs, and chocolate.

EASTER

by Joyce Kilmer



The air is like a butterfly

With frail blue wings.

The happy earth looks at the sky

And sings.

 





A PAGAN EASTER POEM



The sacred day of Easter comes,

When every Christian household hums.

Baskets with eggs and bunnies too,

and kiddies get some clothes, all new.

Just everyone is seen in church.

The preacher sits upon his perch.

Tells of your son whose blood dripped down

to save the sinners of the town.

I squirm each time I have to hear

that torture tale of death and fear.

They put your son then in a tomb,

a big one with a lot of room.

He wouldn’t stay; three days went by.

Then he was as alive as I.

I find that yarn real hard to take.

God, didn’t you make a big mistake?

If you are powerful as they say,

couldn’t you find a better way?

All Sun Gods seem to be connected,

Cause all were killed and resurrected.
