(Not) An Easter Poem

I realize by most people, this isn’t thought of as an Easter poem, really, since it was written with a different, specific historical moment in mind (namely the end of WW1), but when I think of spring, and of life springing forth, Siegfried Sassoon’s “Everyone Sang” always comes to my mind. Hope you enjoy, and happy spring / happy Easter.

If you’d like to read more of Sassoon‘s work, a lot of it is in the public domain, for example here:
