Footnotes

The word “Easter” and most of the secular celebrations of the holiday come from pagan traditions. Anglo Saxons worshipped Eostre, the goddess of springtime and the return of the sun after the long winter. According to legend, Eostre once saved a bird whose wings had frozen during the winter by turning it into a rabbit. Because the rabbit had once been a bird, it could still lay eggs, and that rabbit became our Easter Bunny. Eggs were a symbol of fertility in part because they used to be so scarce during the winter. There are records of people giving each other decorated eggs at Easter as far back as the 11th century.

Hatched Anew!

Batik Easter Eggs


With a needle,
pierce the eggs;
blow the yolk
for omelet.

Crayon fierce designs ,
then dye them delicate;
Hang with threads
from pussy willow branches
under the ceiling’s cavity.
(safe from cats)

Admire eggs,
your artwork.
Easter’s proclamation:
“Jesus lives!
Hatched His tomb!”
