Gladness of Easter

I trod the path where once we walked together; Old leaves and withered fir-cones strewed the way, And cowslips nodded in the breezy weather, This Easter Day. Across the windy slopes sweet bells were ringing, A skylark's song came downward, clear and gay; And my full heart broke forth in joyous singing, This Easter Day.
