Easter Wings
Easter Wings
by George Herbert

Tough-O-Meter

We’ve got your back. With the Tough-O-Meter, you’ll know whether to bring extra layers or Swiss army knives as you summit the literary mountain. (10 = Toughest)

(4) Base Camp

The wing shape is cute but the heavyweight theology hovering just beneath makes this poem more complex than it looks. It's easy to get snagged on the central paradox that sin is both bad and good, but if you stick with it, you may find a nice Easter basket at the end of the hike. Here's hoping for some marshmallow Peeps.
