From under a broad-brimmed hat
Peeks the face of an Easter angel, sweet
Sparkling eyes, a basket for eggs
Patent leather on both feet.

Cameras flashing, dads/moms dashing
The family is all lined up in a row.
“Smile, everyone!” The sun is shining.
It’s off to church we go.

Eight little children, all dressed the same.
Mommy made every dress, by hand.
Pink, yellow, blue and green.
It’s the Easter Parade… and it's very grand!

Happy Easter! What a joyous day it is!

I was able to shut my eyes and bring up the scene and the event as though I had turned on a small TV in my mind, so vivdly was this word picture of the past painted! What is more, it had the effect that all good poetry should have: it brought back memories of my own childhood expeience of Easter and allowed me to share in the nostalgia that inspired you to write this gem.

Good work, katy; written like a true Irish Viking!

Hope you are having a Happy Easter.
your friend from Down Under with the Irish blood.

You wrote the poem that was bouncing around in my head Katy. I guess I will now have to work a bit harder to find another one. This is a great trip down memory lane for me, thank you.
Take care,
