The Tomb is Open; Walk In

Let us not mock God with metaphor,
Analogy, sidestepping, transcendence,
Making of the event a parable, a sign painted in the faded
Credulity of earlier ages:
Let us walk through the door.

from “Seven Stanzas at Easter” by John Updike

Read the whole poem here, and have a blessed, if confined, Easter.

He is risen!
