Passover - As Always

The season of the seder is almost upon us We will be filled with joy when we imbibe the four cups of wine The mighty Red Sea parted for Moses and the Israelites as they move forward with their plans The late, lamented Richie Havens sang of Sinai in his "Minstrel from Gault" This year we once more are thankful for the Passover meal and yes , we will take joy in our delivery from forces which are intended to destroy us

A rich re-telling of the seder tradition. We re-enacted it at our Christian church many years ago...it was a very moving experience. Enjoyed your poem, Matthew and will have to check on Richie Havens and his Minstrel from Gault.
