Easter Trilogy: Easter Day Poem by David Mitchell

Tell me, sir, where is my Lord, for they have taken him away,
Said Mary Magdalene before the dawning of the day,

And I know not where they’ve laid him, – sir, with him what have you done?
Mary, softly said the risen Christ and Everlasting Sun.

A week ago they raised for me the great ‘Hosanna’ cry –
These were the men who not long since condemn’d this Man to die –
But I have conquered Death, and I have gained for Man the key
To everlasting joy for him beyond eternity.

Behold, mankind, what God will dare to undertake for you;
What Man will undertake – the selfsame Man Whom mankind slew:
Behold the wonder: Christ rose after suff’ring Cross and scourge:
The work of none but God, a most Almighty Thaumaturge.

Despair no more, O man, for your scarce revocable loss
Has been atoned: ’twas not for Christ Christ died upon a Cross:
Hear Jesus’ words, listen to them: ‘Poor sinner, follow me
To everlasting life, for I, the Truth, have made you free.’

’Tis Easter-Time Again! Poem by Dr. John Celes

Easter is coming, once again,

It is a boon and not a bane.
The year is two thousand and seven; ’

Tis time to prepare your soul for heaven.

Follow the road taken by Christ’s cross,

Offer your sorrows to Jesus, the boss;
This is the time to sacrificem,

Make up your mind to give up all vice!
Forgive and forget your neighbors’ faults,

Bear not witness against him false;
Waste no time and never tell lies,

A Christian ought to be soul-wise.
Jesus died to rise again,

His sufferings were not in vain;
He left His Holy Spirit here,

For us to live, without any fear.
Prepare your soul by good confession,

Do your penance with passion;
Where are the Shepherds? Where are the flocks?
Where are the men of God in white frocks?

Open your heart to Jesus Christ- The Son of the One, Living God praised;
If your flocks have gone astray, Go search and bring them in Christ’s way!

’Tis Easter-Time Again! Poem by Dr. John Celes


Easter – Easter Saturday Quietly Begins Poem by Paul Warren

Easter Saturday quietly begins with the news.
The accounts of a terrorist’s death we choose.
Tempered with the faces of the Brussels dead.
As each is held in the family sadness bred.

He who dies for our sins on Good Friday.
Now weeps for us as we look to find our way.
We now await an end to these bloody times.
Despairing with each new hideous event in their book of crimes.

This is the most sacred time of the Christian story.
We look to God to find a path whilst bathing in his glory.
Help us to understand why we now face these tasks.
Whilst we find it difficult for what these trials now ask.

Easter Hunt And Fun Poem by Paul Warren

Easter Sun as the day is dawning
Children laughing and looking
For Easter eggs hidden around
By the Easter Bunny to be found

Baskets full and smiles for all
Chocolate faces will be your call
Furry rabbits and fluffy chicks
Chocolate extreme for all your licks.

Easter Hunt And Fun Poem by Paul Warren


Happy Easter-Sunday… Poem by Sylvia Frances Chan


Jesus The Almighty One has arisen….

On this Easter Sunday morning, we commemorate
that the Lord Jesus has risen from the dead.
Consider this word “risen”.
That means that He is alive again after being dead.
What Power He has, our God, the One God above all names of other gods.

Never has one been alive again after being dead!

The Greatest Wonder of All Time.
God shows how powerful He IS.

Today we celebrate His Resurrection
from the dead.

We are no longer sad but are now shouting for joy.

After our Easter prayer,
we sing and dance with joy,

Jesus has arisen from the dead!

Happy Easter-Sunday... Poem by Sylvia Frances Chan


Easter Day Poem by Oscar Wilde

The silver trumpets rang across the Dome:
The people knelt on the ground in awe:
And borne upon the necks of men I saw,
Like some great God, the Holy Lord of Rome.
Priest-like, he wore a robe more white than foam,
And, king-like, swathed himself in royal red,
Three crowns of gold rose high upon his head:
In splendor and in light the Pope passed home.
My heart stole back across wide wastes of years
To One who wandered by a lonely sea,
And sought in vain for any place of rest:
‘Foxes have holes, and every bird its nest,
I, only I, must wander wearily,
And bruise my feet, and drink wine salt with tears.’

Easter Day Poem by Oscar Wilde


Easter Communion Poem by Gerard Manley Hopkins

Pure fasted faces draw unto this feast:
God comes to all sweetness to your Lenten lips.
You striped in secret with breath-taking whips,
Those crooked rough-scored chequers may be pieced
To crosses meant for Jesu’s; you whom the East
With a draught of thin and pursuant cold so nips
Breathe Easter now; you serged fellowships,
Your vigil-keepers with low flames decreased,

God shall o’er-brim the measures you have spent
With the oil of gladness, for sackcloth and frieze
And the ever-fretting shirt of punishment
Give myrrhy-threaded golden folds of ease.
Your scarce-sheathed bones are weary of being bent:
Lo, God shall strengthen all the feeble knees.

Easter Communion Poem by Gerard Manley Hopkins


Easter Poem by George Herbert

Rise, heart, thy lord has risen. Sing his praise
Without delays,
Who takes thee by the hand, that thou likewise
With him mayst rise:
That, as his death calcinèd thee to dust,
His life may make thee gold, and, much more, just.

Awake, my lute, and struggle for thy part
With all thy art,
The cross taught all wood to resound his name
Who bore the same.
His stretchèd sinews taught all strings what key
Is best to celebrate this highest day.

Consort, both heart and lute, and twist a song
Pleasant and long;
Or, since all music is but three parts vied
And multiplied
Oh let thy blessèd Spirit bear a part,
And make up our defects with his sweet art.

Easter Poem by George Herbert


Poem For Easter Poem by Steve Turner

Tell me: What came first Easter or the egg?
Crucifixion or daffodils?
Three days in a tumor four days in Paris?
(returning Bank Holiday Monday).

When is a door not a door?
When it is rolled away.
When is a body not a body?
When it has risen.

Question. Why was it the Saviour rode on the cross?
Answer. To get us to the other side.

Behold I stand.
Behold I stand and what?
Behold I stand at the door and

knock knock.

What Easter Means To Me Poem by Frank Pulver

There is one that must be praised.
That He was raised.
After He died.
From being crucified.
He accepted the pain on the cross without a plea.
To show the Love for you and me.
His life was given so that our Life can be restored.
To live eternally with our Lord.

Hopefully, you can see.
What Easter Means to Me.

Happy Easter Day
The beautiful time it is now
Let’s celebrate it
I wish you all of my friends
A most wonderful Easter

I’m sending you each
And all lots of love and hugs

But keep in mind Jesus first

What Is The Meaning Of Easter? Poem by Theresa Ann Moore

A season for tulips and daffodils yellow.
Eating jelly beans and eggs of marshmallow…
With artificial colors and intense sweetness.
A time to celebrate life and completeness.

The importance of Easter is the resurrection.
A renewal of life that once felt disconnected.
Hope for forgiveness at a heavenly address…
Where sinners and chocolate bunnies are guests.

The Easter Parade. Poem by Charles M Moore

We all came along to the Easter parade.
The girls with their bonnets and men with their plaids.
And the children with baskets of chocolate eggs.
And mother home cooking for a family spread.

We walked to the field where the old hayloft stands.
With music being played by The Pioneer Band.
Where grandma and grandpa caught many a glance.
Blazing a trail at the festival dance.

And the pie competition was drama indeed.
As the judge said the winner was his little niece.
And the Reverend stepped in to calm down all the fuss.
“Today is for Jesus, Not pies, And not us”.

Young men being boisterous sought some attention.
From girls who quite simply just wanted affection.
And avoiding their mothers, slipped quietly away
for the first teenage kiss of the Easter parade.

The Easter Parade. Poem by Charles M Moore


Easter – The Second Chance Poem by Sujay Sam

‘ It is finished”, He said in grief and pain
Breathed His last, Knowing it’s all for man’s gain.
This brutal death, sealed by His disciple’s kiss,
30 pieces of silver, never enough for one man’s bliss.

The serpent’s face smirked with a smile
For the messiah’s death, to him seemed futile.
But soon his glee would turn to gloom;
As my Savoir had indeed, risen from His tomb.

On the third day He rose, defeating death’s painful sting;
Endured the way of the cross, so to Him praises we sing.
He died for us, under man’s own cruel decree,
His love so dear, set the slumberers free.

Easter is about one man’s premeditated persecution
That saved our entire race, condemned to damnation.
So rejoice in Him and truly believe,
A second chance in life, you may receive!

Easter - The Second Chance Poem by Sujay Sam


Easter Poem Poem by Danielle Deery

He left the world, he died on the wood
Wishing that we would see the good
But we didn’t and now you will see
He died to finally set us all free

For every prayer, I’ll make tonight
If only this one could be right
I know that it’s a lot to ask,
But is it really a difficult task?

If one day maybe he’ll come home
Leaving his father on his throne
Not gold and jewels like an ordinary king
The prince has been crowned with thorns that sting.

Every person knows of him
Those who don’t will soon begin
To realize that they have missed out
Then they’ll start to sing and shout.

The discovery is so pure and fine
That it ignites a fire in every mind
Everybody who could not see
Will soon become both proud and free.

The First Easter Poem by Edgar Albert Guest

Dead they left Him in the tomb and the impenetrable gloom,
Rolled the great stone to the door,
Dead, they thought, forevermore.

Then came Mary Magdalene
Weeping to that bitter scene,
And she found, to her dismay,
That the stone was rolled away.

Cometh Peter then and John,
Him they’d loved to look upon,
And they found His linen there
Left within the sepulcher.

They have taken Him away!’
Mary cried that Easter Day.
Low, she heard a voice behind:
‘Whom is it you seek to find?’

‘Tell me where He is!’ she cried,
‘Him they scourged and crucified.
Here we left Him with the dead!’
‘Mary! Mary!’ Jesus said.

So by Mary Magdalene
First the risen Christ was seen,
And from every heart that day
Doubt’s great stone was rolled away.

It’s Easter Sunday Poem by David Darbyshire

The sun comes up
Sure as our hope
It’s Easter Sunday
God willing we cope

Now it’s high noon
In the shadow of the cross
We sit and morn
For his forgiveness and loss

The sunset is purple
The color of passion and love
Pray with me together
Peace to all free the white dove.
