Passover's Open Shutters

Marc Chagall 


Sarah opens shutters,
pulls back the heavy
curtains,
she sweeps
the dust from old books.
Porcelain birds nest on her mantle.
She breaks up old spider webs.
"Grandma" Sarah Pearl
opens her
home  
to the crisp, spring day
red blossoms
white legs
welcomes 
Elijah in to share
with her family's
Passover.
