What is Easter
It's not about the eggs to hunt
It's not about a bunny
It's not about brand new clothes
Or candy as sweet as hunny
On this day many years ago
A man named Jesus Christ
Upon a cross for you and me
Gladly gave his life
Not for sins that he had done
Or crimes he must repay
He did it all for you and me
For our sins he died that day
But that's not the end of Jesus Christ
They put him in a grave
But three days later he rose again
Our sin debt had finally been paid
So this easter as you hunt for eggs
Dressed up in brand new clothes
Don't think about the Easter Bunny
Think about why Christ arose

"Lord I Lift Your Name On High"

Lord I lift Your name on high
Lord I love to sing Your praises
I'm so glad You're in my life
I'm so glad You came to save us

[Chorus:]
You came from heaven to earth
To show the way
From the earth to the cross
My debt to pay
From the cross to the grave
From the grave to the sky
Lord I lift Your name on high

She's brilliant, isn't she! Maybe she should publish an anthology of her poems in a book - perhaps title it, "Easter Sunday" :)
Did those feet in ancient times
Walk upon England's mountain's green
Was the holy lamb of God
On England's pleasant pastures seen
Did the countenance divine
Shine forth upon our clouded hills
And was an Easter egg eaten here
Among the dark satanic mills

Bring me my bow of burning gold
Bring me my arrows of desire
Bring me my spear, oh! clouds unfold
Bring me my chariot of fire
I will not cease from mental fight
Nor will my sword sleep in my hand
Until an Easter egg is eaten here
On England's green and pleasant land

William Blake will be turning in his grave! :roll:

According to the Merriam-Webster online dictionary, to "plagiarise" means:

* to steal and pass off (the ideas or words of another) as one's own
* to use (another's production) without crediting the source
* to commit literary theft
* to present as new and original an idea or product derived from an existing source


In other words, plagiarism is an act of fraud. It involves both stealing someone else's work and lying about it afterward.

If he was alive today, Graham, he'd be scratching at the lid of his coffin :lol:
Thank you Cerberus
I will consider your suggestion.

I hope you do, and remember to cite your source in future. Jennifer Mary Croy would be furious if she knew you'd been stealing her intellectual property. :)

Well.... Cerberus, you could set a good example of you doing so as well... Because I know you would give me a hard time if it was me .... :shock: ... you could add William Blake name after you recite his :roll:

I left a link of the song, it is that simple and I know you can add the link in as well... so give the poor girl some nice direction by explaining how she could put the link in and what make it work so that we can click on it :P

So..CarrieB... once you find the link of the source..copy and paste in your post :) .. high light the link.. and you will see what look like a chain... lick on it or you can add it to your self in front of the link put in [url] and at the end of the link add [ url] (without the space in between the brackets) they both work either way :)

I'm surprised that he didn't quote the source as he usually does. Maybe because Blake is so well known that no one could possibly claim to have written it.

I do however feel cheated as I really thought Carrie had written her poem. Maybe I should use Google more before giving praise. :shock:
To be fair, I don't think anyone here claimed to have written the words they posted; they merely shared something they enjoyed :D
