                                                             FOR EASTER

                Death conquers all

                but not on Resurrection Day.

                The Irish chose

                Easter to declare

                The birth of the new Irish state.

                Their heroes failed and yet were


                Death, death, and then rebirth.

                That is the promise

                of Resurrection Day.

                Why is suffering

                The condition of holiness?

                Why does the holy depend

                Upon the nails driven into the body

                And the horror of the cross?

                but not on Resurrection Day
