Eve

by
 Look how she stands, high on the steep facade
of the cathedral, near the window-rose,
simply, holding in her hand the apple,
judged for all time as the guiltless-guilty

for the growing fruit her body held
which she gave birth to after parting from
the circle of eternities.
She left to face the strange New Earth, so young in years.
Oh, how she would have loved to stay a little longer in that enchanted garden, where the peaceful gentle beasts grazed side by side.
But Adam was resolved to leave, to go out into this New Earth, and facing death she followed him.
God she had hardly known.
