A-Z sketches in verse: April’s Applause



Alas, egad, and can it be?
It’s time to blog from A to Z.
Ahem, huzzah. Hold the applause
Until the zesty final clause.

Miss April’s shoes are set to dance.
Her pretty pen, it begs to prance.
So stick around. We’ll cut a rug,
As beckoned by the blogging bug.

Easter Themes: New Life for All


The bodily resurrection of Jesus marked the forever triumph of life over death. Christians rejoice on Easter Sunday to remember the sacrifice of the Lord and His victory over the grave. This rhymed sestet highlights the promise of new life, as celebrated on Resurrection Day.

New Life for All

A newly hatched Easter egg serves as a sign,
As death springs to life by Creator divine.
So Jesus the Savior came forth from the grave,
To bring life forever and mankind to save.
May this Easter Sunday bring much joy to you,
For God only knows what His power can do.

Easter Themes: Here Come the Chicks



Baby animals positively entrance everyone in the spring season. Little chicks have become known as a harbinger of spring and a symbol of new life at Easter. This rhymed sestet reminds us of the fun of playing outdoors, even as the baby chicks do.


Here Come the Chicks

Peep! Peep! The baby chicks
Pick and peck for corn and kicks.
Easter’s here, so let’s go play
To celebrate this happy day.
Happy Easter. Happy Spring.

Easter Themes: The Abandoned Grave


To pay our debt to death, the Lord borrowed a tomb. Once the debt had been paid, He no longer needed a burial site. He arose, as these four lines in rhyme clearly state.

The Abandoned Grave

The Savior slew all of our strife
With power not yet understood.
He purchased forever our life –
The tomb, it is empty for good.

Happy Easter. He is risen!
