Creating Eve

Adam made her blue as sky,
Put an apple in her eye,
Gilded underneath her dress
All transparent loveliness.

For his own he filled her mind
With all gentleness and kind,
Gave her strength of his to share,
Instead of sunlight, gave her hair.

Breathed upon her flowery scent
To his little heart’s content.
And last a tongue—
but when she spoke,
his all was lost. Creation broke.

  1. So Eve speaking was the original sin? New doctrine, Stephan. But I like it!

  2. Well, Eve is supposed to be the male construct . . .
