July 22, St. Mary Madgalene, Apostle John 20:1-2, 11-18

St. Mary Magdalene

Why are you crying?
The morning air seemed crisp and sharp
but all was a blur
  the hope
     the love
buried and taken
Why are your crying?
at the empty tomb
fresh in the morning light
with the stench of death
        gone
           go tell
                   Mary
    beloved of Jesus
tell the others
what you do not see
and what is there
the tomb empty
and the Son of God
free from the bounds that held him
Go and tell
as the first to announce to the world
       life
death conquered
and the gift
      life
           given
