  Mary Magdalene And The Other Mary  

 

Our Master lies asleep and is at rest;
    His Heart has ceased to bleed, His Eye to weep.
The sun ashamed has dropt down in the west;
    Our Master lies asleep.

    Now we are they who weep, and trembling keep
Vigil, with wrung heart in a sighing breast,
    While slow time creeps, and slow the shadows creep.

Renew Thy youth, as eagle from the nest;
    O Master, who hast sown, arise to reap:
No cock-crow yet, no flush on eastern crest;
    Our Master lies asleep.

       - Christina G. Rossetti
