Eden's Children (chapter II)


Adam and Eve
-the beautiful story of birth and death
what man and god alike has to give
to unfold the beginnings of truth;

Cain and Abel
-the beautiful story of love and hate
between status and power; name and title
to unveil the face that hides from the light

Tower of Babel
-the beautiful story of wisdom and pride
of prince and lord; ruler and citizen; priest and noble
to unlock the bars of the heaven's side

Joseph and his brothers
-the beautiful story of vision and suspicion
thus wife against husband; children against parents
to unmask the characters of personal and social mission

Moses and the nation
-the beautiful story of The Law -the blessing and the curse
thus their rise and fall; unity and division
to unload their vise and virtue unto the skies

Jesus and the world
-the beautiful story of love, faith and charity
thus his lordship is over the new and the old
to define the was, is, to be for us to be free

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

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,
