'Twas the night before Easter

'Twas the night before Easter and all through the house
Not a creature was sleeping, 'cept maybe the mouse
The baskets were laid out and all filled with grass
In hopes that the Easter Bunny wouldn't just pass.

The children were nestled all snug in nightgowns
But the echos of giggles continue to sound
Bedtimes stories and prayers ad threats weren't enough
To calm their excitement or, their restlessness, snuff

Yet in a mere few hours, long before sunrise
They will rise from their beds to seek out the prize
For Full Easter baskets they will search high and low
Their mouths seeking sweet treats, their eyes all aglow

Then, Easter sweets found and baskets devoured
Breakfast is eaten as we draw nearer to church hour
Five little beings to be dressed, groomed and readied
And loaded in the car. Off to church we are headed.
Where we remember the reason we celebrate this fun day,
Because our Lord and Savior has risen this Sunday.

Happy Easter, everyone!
