A Joy-Filled Metaphore

Joy is the dawning of

Easter after a long night’s vigil

Joy, in the early morning, is birds singing,

Church bells ringing.

It is lilies fragrant;

Sisters sitting in a row,

Mother, with a new hat made

From last year’s bonnet.

Joy is Father preaching,

Affirming Christ’s resurrection.

It is choir singing

Alleluiah! Alleluiah!

Joy is the promise of Easter fulfilled.
