Several Easter folklores and poems are meant to make the kids understand the deep sited meaning and spirit of this holy occasion. One such poem is ‘Easter Comes But Once a Year’ by JS Bach. This poem narrates how a bunch of children enjoy the festival of Easter. Children make merry filling themselves with chocolate when their father is away in the pub for a pint of beer. Even the little ones are not left behind. But amid all the fun, they too realize that Easter is the occasion to remember the Lord who sacrificed his life for the mankind. Here are the lyrics of the Easter poem 'Easter Comes But Once a Year.'
Easter Comes But Once a Year
Easter comes but once a year
But when it does, we all know its here
Children filling themselves with chocolate
Dad's down the pub for a pint of beer!
We go to the church for the wine and bread
Dad's half asleep, and jerking his head
Baby sister is here too, munching away
On the free Easter egg that the Priest gave us today
But remember we must, that the Lord died for us
And ascended into heaven to give us fresh lives
For each and every one of us
