An empty cave, the stone removed,
a neatly folded shroud remained,
confusion magnified their grief,
no sense that life might be regained.

So terrified, the women ran,
afraid, their world turned upside down,
and while the light of dawn had come,
their fear became a tattered gown.

Verses 3-4 follow
