(Romans 12: 17-18)

Easter greetings to you,

Whatever your holiday brew…

If believers we’ll say,

Resurrection Day

Blessings to your family and you!

Easter with Christ’s cross in tow

Were mixed up a long time ago…

Whether done as a “witness”

Or by pagan resistance,

The truth is sure hard to know!

We could blame old Constantine,

His vision of a cross that he leaned…

To win the day

In a military way,

But Church Fathers also have schemed.

Happy Easter, to me when bestowed,

Becomes a kind of code…

Depending on whom

Bestows, I assume

Whether Resurrection is known.

–Jonathan Caswell
