Theme poem implies the mention of any basic motifs, symbols, expressions associated with the event, to which it is dedicated. Focus on the very essence of Easter – it is called a bright holiday and in the Christian community is considered one of the main holidays, on a par with Christmas. To convey the sense of light, resurrection, purity is the task of the poet. Basic terms and expressions — “resurrection” or “resurrection”, “Christ resurrected”, “truly resurrected”, attributes of church service — bell ringing, church candles, painted eggs, etc. — these elements will create the atmosphere of Easter. Don’t forget that Orthodox and Catholic Easter are somewhat different in mood and attributes.
If you want to write a poem about Orthodox Easter, it makes sense to include a vocabulary with an Old Russian twist — one used in services and sacred texts.$ As, for example, in the poem V. Kühelbecker: “My soul, jubilant and sing.” The harmonization of “my soul” in modern language would be considered an anachronism, but in the text devoted to the church feast looks quite appropriate. However, this reception is not at all obligatory.
For the poem, it is better to choose a smooth, somewhat parable size. For example, the five-stop yamb, as in the poem by K. Balmont (“I waited for him with understandable impatience, the delight of the saint in his soul keeping”) or a six-stack yamb like A. Maikova (“Change times, roll into eternity years, but once spring permanent will come…”). Size and rhythm, however, depend on the mood you’d like to convey in your poem.
If you want to congratulate your relatives and friends on Easter in verse form, then you can take already ready fourties that you can find on the internet in abundance. And you can compose your own — here will play the role of brevity (few lines are quite enough) and “address” – you can use the name of the person in congratulations, you can just wish him well or that something else, and you can use the standard beginning of “Christ is resurrected!”.
