'Twas the day of Erev Pesach
And all through the house
Everyone was scurrying
busy like a mouse.
The chicken soup was boiling
Atop the stove in a pot
The brownies just out of the oven
Were nice and piping hot.
The seder plate was anxious
to be placed nicely on the table
"Okay, okay, I'll do it
in a little while, when I'm able."
The silver was nice and shiny
lined up all in a row
As I hurried to set the table
I foolishly stubbed my toe.
These are the familiar scenes
In every house and home
I thought I'd capture their essence
And put it together in a little poem.
Although I wrote it quickly
And really just off the cuff
I think I'd better stop here
I still have to get busy enough.
To get the preparations finished
For this Yom Tov that starts tonight
To you and your cherished families
May your Pesach be wonderful and bright.
A very happy, Kosher Pesach to you and all those gathered 'round your tables!
