In the beginning the world was great, the creation was good,
But something was missing in Adam's neighborhood.
The heavenly sky was a perfect blue, the air pure and sweet,
What else could man wish what more could he need?
Each of God’s creatures had its mate, a true partner for life,
A companion for support through sorrow or strife.
But sadly, it was yet not so for Adam, for alone he is seen,
Sadder by each lonely moment, like a horrible dream!
We read that God said; 'it is not good that man is alone',
So, He set about to bring happiness to Adam’s home.
God gently took Adam aside and put him in a deep sleep,
Surgically He removed a rib to make a helpmeet.
God presented His gift to Adam, his wife she would be,
From that day forward and for all eternity.
She was superb in her beauty! A graceful joy and delight!
She is called Woman to stand by Adam’s side.
Adam’s loneliness is defeated with God's great surprise,
His gift of woman who shall become his wife.
Now, the sky is much bluer! The trees are a deeper green!
Songbirds sing sweeter, the earth in beauty gleams!
God creation is now perfect, the final touch of His hand,
His masterpiece is completed by creating Woman.
An awesome thing happened, as God always knew it would,
For through “Eve”, He turned 'not good' into 'Good'.
