There Are No Ladders

This Easter week I want to share with you some classic writings on this great day of victory!

THERE ARE NO LADDERS

Judith Deem DuPree

There are no ladders

      at the cross,

Ascending or descending.

You do not choose the hill,

the day, the angle of the sun

        against your eyes,

Nor any of the likliest

      antagonists.

You simply yield,

Because the great necessity

         confronts you.  .   .   .

Because there is no stanima

        in the unbroken flesh;

Nothing to forgive,

       until the nails.
