A Sonnet for Easter (my Sonnet number 1)

Spring is a season for love that is said

What intrigues me more is the falling rain

For the Lord of Love is fallen and dead

What is spring but sorrow, pity, and pain?

Upon a tree is borne his wond’rous name

Tis the cross of Christ for all sinners slain

He took the burden of my sin and shame

What is spring when ceases the hurting pain?


Love! Love! Has love risen from this stone grave

The Father rejoices who hid His head

All my sin, the heat of hell His Son braved

For the Lord of Love rose, no longer dead

He put asunder Satan’s zealous ploy

The Son rose again to give all men joy!


About LovExpressed

My name is Joseph Elon Lillie VI (that's right the sixth). I am a junior in college. I have learned we spend so much time caught complaining and focusing on things that don't matter so the things that matter slip through our fingers like water. when it comes to what matters, I have learned that nothing matters to me as much as love, hope, and faith. These things keep me focused on the goal. I have had good times where I was happy, and I have had times of despair; but my blessing has always outweighed the sorrow that I have felt. I am currently in the middle of my first novella. Enjoy the journey with me as I discover the things that really matter in life.
