Beginning to Middle: Part 2

Continuing my theme this week of what we’re about, here is my take on Adam and Eve:

The Garden

He had no childhood memories

For formed as a man was he

And he and his wife

Began all human life

And their actions changed history

They lived long, we’re told, in banishment

Worked the land and toiled for food

But we’re yearning to learn

Did their hearts still return

To that garden, where all was good?

Their act of will left them free to choose

Made them slaves of their own desires

But it brought them great pain

And outside God’s domain

They lived closer to satan’s fires

So all through their seven hundred years

Did they harbour some deep regrets?

Did they relive that day?

Wish their choices away?

Seek forgiveness for Mankind’s debts?

We cannot know of their inner thoughts

But they had many years to reflect

Would they counsel today

Not to choose our own way

But to give God our hearts’ respect?

As their children grew and they peopled the Earth

Did they dearly desire God’s pardon?

Did they yearn for the love

They’d once known from above

When they walked in that tranquil Garden?
