I found my Savior when he died
passed from life, yet to rise
surrounded by the ones who cared
ready to move him to a tomb.

Nature was the frame without
asking me to look within
where I've given up my sins
with knowledge that he'd rise again.

The garden held the station's crest
put upon a bright green wall
proceeded by twelve milestones
with best as last, praise the Lord.

Acceptance of the longest walk
a day that saved this humble soul
the stone showed the sacrifice
while spring's rebirth foretold more.

I'll stand here to declare his gift
the covenant of God to men
before I leave this gladed place
to live again as Jesus did.

The poem "To Live Again" was prompted by the All Poetry contest "2017 Winter Park Paint Out" (https://allpoetry.com/contest/2683165-THIS-WEEK--2017-Winter-Park-Paint-Out-Poetr). The inspiring painting, "Station of the Cross", was painted in oil by Charles Dickinson.
