Bible Poems for Children The Garden of Eden


The Garden of Eden was made
by God,
Adam the first man to ever
trod.

Beautiful trees and plants
grew there
Adam was happy without a
care.

Tree of Life and Knowledge
too
planted in the garden grew.

The tree of Knowledge God
forbid,
do not touch, or I will rid.

A lost paradise would occur
a magic kingdom all a blur.

One day when Adam fell asleep
God took a rib made Eve so
sweet.

Satan came formed a snake
tempted Eve for goodness sake.

She ate the apple ripe and red
gave it to Adam, Adam was fed.

A paradise was lost that day
a working life began this way.

    Speaks of a utopia seductively becoming a very tragic loss. The greatest loss in the history of mankind, caused by man himself. Beautifully told. A wonderful job heather. Thank you. (Report) Reply

    Though this Biblical story of Adam and Eve is known to everyone, when put in such rhyming verse, it has achieved a novelty and can be enjoyed even by grown ups! (Report) Reply

    That's all, we're here to work, suffer and pay for their sins. Simple as that. (Report) Reply

Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
