Fall from Grace A Roundel

Before the beginning of time when Chaos ruled Hell and Night
Into the depths of this Cosmos, a Paradise, perfectly placed.
Above this darkness, a heaven drawn forth in a burst of light
Before the beginning of time

From the Garden of Eden, henceforth, Adam and Eve were disgraced
Lo!  A fallen angel  changed himself to a serpent in Eve’s sight
Banished, they fled before God to a wilderness, forever displaced.

Forbidden fruit had shown them the difference of wrong from right.
In Pandemonia,  Demons conspired, sin and death be interlaced.
God sacrificed his Son to save them  - from Hell's eternal plight.
Before the beginning of time

Suzanne Delaney

    I don't have a clue as to how to write a Roundel...This is flawlessly done. I was so spell-bound by the name 'Pandemonia' that I went on the internet to look it up to see if it was the actual name of a place and found no such name, which tells me it came straight from that mind of yours...Awesome - Tim

    Congratulations on the FIRST PLACE win in my PARADISE LOST - ROUNDEL contest. This is an excellent poem on a difficult subject and roundel is not an easy poetry form. Please let me have your contact email for me to forward the prize, DANCE OF THE WORDS - A Guide to Various Poetry Forms, to you. Love, Su (The book is on its way - enjoy).

    Dear Xegrakio POETESS, S-N, S u Z, I had to look up Roundel, but I did not find the form. I see by the refrain "Before the beginning of time" that it is sort of a half Villanelle. Is the Pharse anything like "After the end of Eternity"?? I do not know Suzette that well so I wish YOU a Good Talent WIN.I LOVE YOU ALWAYS and FOREVER YOUR S-P, Loyal Liege...HG Same P.S. as last comment. LOVE YOU ALWAYS and FOREVER...Harry

    It gives new meaning to start the beginning with the end in mind. A wonderful tribute to our Amazing God and Savior.

    I'm glad to see someone do that contest of Su's. I feel bad I have not even tried it yet! You did well, my friend. Great topic you chose for a roundel!

    I like the repetative use of "Before the beginning of time" very nice
