Biblical legend tells us that the lily flower came from Eve's tears when she and Adam were banished from the Garden of Eden.The lily is also the traditional flower of spring and is highly regarded as a joyful symbol of beauty, hope, and more here...

Your joy is your sorrow unmasked.
And the selfsame well from which your laughter rises
was oftentimes filled with your tears.
--Khalil Gibran(1883 –1931)

The Easter Parade 2011 ends tomorrow; Poem copyright remains with the individual writers
much love

Nice quote by Gibran, ~‘The deeper sorrow carves into your being the more joy you can contain.’ ~ Gibran
