love is come again

Now the green blade rises from the buried grain,
Wheat that in the dark earth many years has lain;
Love lives again, that with the dead has been:
Love is come again, like wheat that springs up green.

In the grave they laid Him, Love Whom we had slain,
Thinking that He’d never wake to life again,
Laid in the earth like grain that sleeps unseen:
Love is come again, like wheat that springs up green.

Up He sprang at Easter, like the risen grain,
He that for three days in the grave had lain;
Up from the dead my risen Lord is seen:
Love is come again, like wheat that springs up green.

When our hearts are saddened, grieving or in pain,
By Your touch You call us back to life again;
Fields of our hearts that dead and bare have been:
Love is come again, like wheat that springs up green.

Excellent post thanks for sharing. I enjoy reading and writing poems very much. It’s very relaxing. Thanks again.

An Easter Poem

We have a different season for Easter- with the leaves on the deciduous trees looking rather beautiful at present. And even though there was scarcely a breeze this morning, you could watch them falling gently. Not sure how you equate the theology with all that!

Thanks both.

Margaret – your point is fascinating – I’m going away to think about it. Does anyone know what season it is in the Holy Land at Easter? Is it spring?
