Millinery: The Easter Parade and A Poem for Easter Saturday
There isn't going to be an Easter parade anywhere here in Houston.
I'll bet there isn't going to be one where you live either.
Soooo.....how about we hat lovers putting together a virtual Easter Parade?
Take a picture of yourself in your Easter hat tomorrow, then post the picture on your blog on Easter Monday. Leave a comment today if you wish to participate, or a comment on Monday's post so others can find you on your blog, in your bonnet, with all the frills upon it...
Meanwhile I'd like to share the following poem, by Elizabeth Rooney, as found in A Widening Light: Poems of the Incarnation edited by Luci Shaw.
A curiously empty day,
As if the world's life
Had gone underground.
The April sun
Warming dry grass
Makes pale spring promises
But nothing comes to pass.
Relaxes into despair
As we remember our helplessness,
Remember him hanging there.
We have purchased the spices
But they must wait for tomorrow.
We shall keep today
