This is a celebration in order to honor the resurrection of Jesus after the crucifixion. As this festival is held with great regard in the Christian community, several notable poets have written beautiful poems about this festival. The poem 'An Easter Blessing' by J S Bach captures the significance of Easter in our lives. On the day of Easter we should make an effort to introspect by rising above our mundane existence. Here are the lyrics of the Easter poem 'An Easter Blessing' by J S Bach.
An Easter Blessing
Bless this day the joy of life,
The revelation of the flesh,
The paradise of man and wife
Joined to share the gift of bliss.
Bless this day the pain of life,
The passion that redeems the flesh,
The love between a man and wife
Beyond all agony and bliss.
Bless this day the end of life,
The peace within the dying flesh,
The bond between a man and wife
That long outlasts their bit of bliss.
Bless this day the whole of life,
The grace of being more than flesh,
The voyage of a man and wife
Across the mystery of bliss.
