On Easter Day

by Celia Thaxter


Easter lilies! Can you hear

What they whisper, low and clear?

In dewy fragrance they unfold

Their spendor sweet,

their snow and gold.

Every beauty-breathing bell

News of heaven has to tell.

Listen to their mystic voice;

Hear, O mortal, and rejoice.

Hark, their soft and heavenly chime,

Christ is risen for all time
