Lent is a long session of forty days,
Leaving intervening Sundays, which begins
On Ash Wednesday and ends on Holy Saturday.
Jesus spent in wilderness for forty days.
Intervening Sundays are left out
As mini-Ester, not fit for sobriety.
Lent is a time of repentance, fast
And preparation for coming Ester.
Lent is a time of self denial;
Lent is a time of repentance;
Lent is for forsaking sinful acts.
Lent is for withdrawal of pleasure.
Lenten session is more than a fasting.
More than a prayer but a reformer.
Lenten session observation over,
Each soul is cleansed to attend Ester.
