Christmas Around The World


Easter Poetry

    Beneath Thy Cross

    Am I a stone, and not a sheep,
    That I can stand, O Christ, beneath thy cross,
    To number drop by drop Thy Blood's slow loss,
    And yet not weep?

    Not so those women loved
    Who with exceeding grief lamented Thee;
    Not so fallen Peter weeping bitterly;
    Not so the thief was moved;

    Not so the Sun and Moon
    Which hid their faces in a starless sky,
    A horror of great darkness at broad noon--
    I, only I.

    Yet give not o'er,
    But seek Thy sheep, true Shepherd of the flock;
    Greater than Moses, turn and look once more
    And smite a rock.

    Christina Rossetti
