Lilies at the Front of the Church

When I ask someone
why do you go to Church,
they say
To see them light candles
or Go forward during the hymn
or For the music
or Easter lilies.

These white flowers, delicate,
adorn the front of the
Church where we will go
for communion,
stepping among lovely
waiting ones present
and gone
also in the promise
of resurrection.
