                      Go Quickly

She walked in early morning to the tomb,
Her darkness was not lifted by the dawn,
Her heart was empty like a vacant room
Where He was once alive, but now was gone.
His body had been taken to a cave,
Anointed, wrapped in linen, laid on stone,
His final resting place, a hewn out grave,
Where all that will remain of Him is bone.
When last she saw the tomb, it was sealed tight
But now, the tomb was open, and in fear,
She stopped, then heard an angel filled with light,
“Go quickly. He is risen. He’s not here.”
     She ran as fast as joy filled up inside
     Her heart where He forever will reside!

About the Poet
Husband, father, grandfather, and each title is my joy. As a youth, poetry was a means to express the inexpressable. I was attracted to (and still am) the beauty and brevity of verse. All flows out from God, and like a proper prayer, can flow back.
