Easter Wings

George Herbert (1593-1633), a 17th century Welsh-born Anglican priest and poet, is believed by many to be the greatest religious poet in the English language.

This famous pattern poem (see how the words appear as wings especially if you turn it sideways as the poem was originally published), “Easter Wings,” allows the reader see the hope and reality of our shared resurrection in Jesus Christ.

A beautiful and insightful commentary on this poem can be found on ChristianityToday.com, where we found this beautiful design of Herbert’s poem.

He is Risen!
