Lisa's Essential Book List

See the land, her Easter keeping, Rises as her Maker rose.
Seeds, so long in darkness sleeping, Burst at last from winter snows.
Earth with heaven above rejoices; Fields and gardens hail the spring;
Shaughs and woodlands ring with voices, While the wild birds build and sing.
You, to whom your Maker granted Powers to those sweet birds unknown,
Use the craft by God implanted; Use the reason not your own.
Here, while heaven and earth rejoices, Each his Easter tribute bring--
Work of fingers, chant of voices, Like the birds who build and sing.
"Easter Week" p
oem by Charles Kingsley, 1867.
A few views from around my home this Easter Week.
I love the poem and the pictures were perfect with it.. Happy Easter.
