A Lilly And A Rose

Amid the shattered crystals
of the ice on the frozen ground,
an Easter Lilly blooms in splendor,
in the midst of the gray and brown

A symbol of rebirth and beauty
in this otherwise barren place,
a brilliant splash of color
above the snow's white lace

The sight stirs a memory
of a rebirth long ago,
as another flower bloomed forth
from a tomb of carven stone

The Rose of Sharon came forth
so that all the world could see,
that the Son of God had triumphed
to set His children free
