Easter in the Country

Easter! And, ’round these hallowed walls,
These quiet hills, these meadowlands of mine,
Know ancient glory of rebirth
As heady as deep purple wine.

So, too, to men in every corner of the earth,
No matter where, hope is reborn,
Hearts are lifted above despair,
This radiant Easler morn!
