- SEE the land, her Easter keeping,
- Rises as her Maker rose.
- Seeds, so long in darkness sleeping,
- Burst at last from winter snows.
- Earth with heaven above rejoices;
- Fields and gardens hail the spring;
- Shaughs and woodlands ring with voices,
- While the wild birds build and sing.
- You, to whom your Maker granted
- Powers to those sweet birds unknown,
- Use the craft by God implanted;
- Use the reason not your own.
- Here, while heaven and earth rejoices,
- Each his Easter tribute bring-
- Work of fingers, chant of voices,
- Like the birds who build and sing.
- Charles Kingsley
