When yet again lady Persephone has neared the mouth of Hades
All, through which vital energies of grace have flowed
Blooms vibrant in the ceremony of crimson demise
And what appears when looking upward to be
Marvels of metamorphosing majesty
Is shown to be absent from the eye of blood-red Mars

Unique in Your life now of 2,000 years, with a 3 day interruption by death – when you took death by the head, and smashed its brains out, and rose from the grave, Your people now shout…
HAPPY RESURRECTION DAY!
Jesus lives and so shall we…
Like your first time downhill skiing without knowing how to stop, you fly towards death – yet there stands the great God and Savior with nail-pierced hands. Even a crash is safe when Jesus waits for you at the end.
