In The Garden Of Eden

The serpent, being tricky, used truth for a lie “Here Woman, eat. You will surely not die!” So, she ate of the fruit and made up a plan, Crying, “It's not my fault!” as to Adam she ran. Adam and Eve both declaring, “I will show no shame!” As Man took of the fruit, in like manner, the same. When later they saw their nakedness, their innocence lost, The serpent slithered away, leaving them to face the cost. God came to commune with the couple when the day was cool. Finding them covered with leaves, he knew they'd broken his rule. When questioned, they pointed while saying, “I'm not to blame!” While fearfully remembering how the serpent had presented his claim. “You have no proof.” Eve stubbornly persisted to her disgrace. God answered, “Untrue! See the seeds? There is still a trace. Because you partook of the forbidden fruit from that one tree, My Son also will die for these sins, and others, on Calvary.”

Virginia, This is a beautiful poem. You certainly told it point blank. Most of us never want to admit when we do wrong but the truth has a way of coming out. Keep up the good work. God Bless, Cile
