A poem a day in April from Rutgers English PhD students and friends.

Resurrection Sunday

because the historical
Jesus rose in the spring
with the roses or rather
before them, with the lilacs?
But think of the nice girls
tying their bonnets and stepping
out for an armful of magnolia
or forsythia, or cuddling
a very new bunny; why
cut this tenderness out
like the lattice pattern
in a construction-paper basket?
