Vern Fein Reading of The Un-Chosen

As Passover approaches, Vern Fein shares a poem with us. Reminding us that blessed looks different at various points in time. Sending love and prayers. -Renée


The Chosen people
un-chosen for one night.
Huddled in the dark
no fire
listened for wings
any rustle
prayed for lamb’s blood
to protect them
from the Angel of Death.

Did they hear the wails
clutch their first born
in the middle of the night?

The Chosen people
un-chosen one time,

-Vern Fein
