Easter Poetry by Henry Vaughan (1653)
Therefore to weep because thy course is run, Or droop like flow'rs, which lately lost the sun,I cannot yield, since Faith will not permitA tenure got by conquest to the pit.For the great Victor fought for us, and HeCounts ev'ry dust that is laid up of thee.Besides, Death now grows decrepit, and hathSpent the most part both of its time and wrath.That thick, black night, which mankind fear'd, is tornBy troops of stars, and the bright day's forlorn.The next glad news—most glad unto the just!—Will be the trumpet's summons from the dust.
From To The Pious Memory of C[harles] W[albeoffe] Esquire, Who Finished His Course Here, And Made His Entrance Into Immortality Upon The 13 Of September, In The Year Of Redemption, 1653.
