MURRAY COUNTY POETRY

Poems by Murray Poets and Poems About Murray County
EASTER
by
John Homer Luffman
1910-1987


WE SHALL ARISE, DEATH'S NOT THE END,
THIS IS THE EASTER STORY.
'THO IT'S TOO MUCH TO COMPREHEND
THE RESURRECTION'S GLORY.
THAT AS HE LIVES SO, TOO, SHALL WE
THROUGH ALL OF GOD'S TOMORROW,
DEATH AND DISEASES ARE NO MORE
AND NOT A TRACE OF SORROW.
SOME MAY DENY, EXPLAIN AWAY;
THE FAITHFUL DO NOT DOUBT IT
IT'S CHRISTENDOM'S MOST HOLY DAY-
OUR FAITH IS NAUGHT WITHOUT IT.
LET DOUBTERS SAY IT ISN'T SO,
THE RESURRECTION SCORNING,
HIS FAITHFUL CHILDREN FEEL AND KNOW
HE LIVES THIS EASTER MORNING.
