An Easter Poem

It’s Easter in Alaska
And spring is weeks away,
There are no flowers blooming
No green grass on display.

The little girls wear winter coats
Over their Easter dresses,
You never know when you might find
A snowflake in their tresses.

Our egg hunts often happen
Inside our houses warm,
Unless we don our mud boots
And sometimes brave a storm.

Though Easter in Alaska
Does not arrive with spring,
Our hearts still bloom with renewed hope
That makes our voices sing.

For Jesus died to save us
And rose on the third day,
This is what we celebrate
Just in a special way.

So please enjoy your Easter
Proclaim resurrection bold!
And know Alaskans join you
Even if we’re cold.
