The Serenade

Easter Saturday

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!
Give thanks to the Lord for he is good,
  for his love has no end.
The Lord is my strength and my song;
  he was my saviour.
There are shouts of joy and victory
  in the tents of the just.

                                                                     Psalm 117


                                       The dark scrawl of apple branches
                                       are bleeding
                                       into the star-fire
                                       just opening
                                       like a love letter
                                       over the laps
                                       of morning;

                                       shimmering every living thing
                                       a song
                                       through which
                                       beauty sings
                                       the serenade
                                       of God.
