Treasure Island

Sally Ann Scheib


Adam and Eve


Purple ribbons drifted through the sky
Created in the image of God
Full grown with no memories of childhood
Angels watched from behind the trees
The Garden was still except for the fruit
Sweet fruit trees
Why a tree of knowledge?
Eve suckled the fruit while its juice filled her soul
Eyes opened to know good and evil
The ribbons fell to the ground, as they did, they turned to dust

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
