Easter Wishes

I have a special wish for you
dressed in your Easter finest
I hope for you good things to come
and blessings of the kindest.

The eggs are hiding in the grass
our baskets by our side,
“Oh look, I’ve found an Easter egg!”
I heard you cry with pride.

Now baskets full let’st’s celebrate
with candy, eggs and cheer
enjoy your Easter Sunday
hold your friends and family dear.

This picture was taken of my brother and me on Easter of 1963 in our living room in Michigan City, Indiana before church. That hair! Look at those legs I was a real Tomboy growing up.

My mom always got us new clothes for church on Easter and often made them herself. She made both of our outfits that year I loved that dress and apron. Good memories here!

Happy Easter Sunday to all of my fellow poets at Poets United! This isn’t linked to Imaginary Garden Of Real Toads or dVerse~Poets Pub but this is for all of my friends I write with.

April Crocus

When it seems like old man winter
will never lose his icy grip
dainty goblet-shaped Crocus
push through the melting snow.

Yellow, white and purple flowers
putting on their Easter finest
a colorful revival and early arrival
that fills us with new hope
welcoming the coming spring.

Egg Scuse Me

Egg Scuse Me

To be a kid on Easter Sunday
boiling eggs to pile high
for children such a fun day
decorating eggs with dye.

Putting on your Easter finest
to see neighbors at the church
all of us are at our kindest-
until the Easter egg search.

Our egg hunt is quite serious
the largest one around
it makes adults delirious
the children stand their ground.

Such fun to have on Easter
this year we might have won
I fell down on my keister
and got myself outdone.

Happy Easter! I found an old poem I wrote in 2015 for Easter and wanted to share it with you. The image is a vintage postcard.
