I SAY EASTER.
(Romans 12: 17-18)
Easter greetings to you,
Whatever your holiday brew…
If believers we’ll say,
Blessings to your family and you!
Easter with Christ’s cross in tow
Were mixed up a long time ago…
Whether done as a “witness”
Or by pagan resistance,
The truth is sure hard to know!
We could blame old Constantine,
His vision of a cross that he leaned…
To win the day
In a military way,
But Church Fathers also have schemed.
Happy Easter, to me when bestowed,
Becomes a kind of code…
Depending on whom
Bestows, I assume
Whether Resurrection is known.
