Adam & Eve

No, I still find it hard to believe
That God, ever so loving,
Did punish
Adam and Eve.

Yes, it was not a punishment –
It was a gift! It had to be.
God knew the very danger of the Tree
Even before He planted it.
Yes, it was His way to free His most beloved creature,
And thus – a Fruit for them to eat.

For all their lives they had lived in a garden –
Just a garden,
Not even a forest.

Thus, when the lovers took their bite,
From that Fruit of Knowledge,
Mankind received the gift of Knowledge;
And God freed them.
(Like a baby removed from his crib)

God freed them so they will not be jailed in a garden.
It was God’s surprise to man’s eyes.
Thus, Adam and Eve saw the oceans and the seas;
They made love by the shore while touched by the gentle waves;
They climbed mountains together,
And discovered many places they had never known;
For God is a God of love;
That He made Eve,
So Adam could please her as his wife;
And together,
They lived a holy life
(Because they loved each other);
And God never hated them,
But loved them for a day
And for-ever.

Thus, Adam and Eve did bite the Fruit
Mistakenly called apple
(Or perhaps it really was);
I just worry that the other fruits will rot;
So come, let us eat them all.
