So we are led at last to the place where all liturgies dissolve, all pain transcended and all negations cancelled. We are led at last to see all creation shining through the clear light of the Resurrection. For as the English war poet, Siegfried Sassoon, put it 'the singing will never be done':
'Everyone suddenly burst out singing;
And I was filled with such delight
As prisoned birds must find in freedom,
Winging wildly across the white
Orchards and dark-green fields; on--on--and out of sight.
Everyone's voice was suddenly lifted;
And beauty came like the setting sun:
My heart was shaken with tears; and horror
Drifted away ... O, but Everyone
Was a bird; and the song was wordless; the singing will never be done....
Happy Easter Everyone!
