Why were the apostles chastised for looking up into the sky? Didn't Jesus just ascend? Who's to blame them?

The Tomb Continued — a poem

And then I remember the Resurrection story. I imagine the morning after when the disciples arose weary and puffy eyed from weeping with grief desolate, scared and confused.
