Lost Fables...


Childhood
is the Bibles' lost fable
in the Garden of Eden.

Which we left only
after enough years
had whirled about us
that we could see over the top
of the hedgerow

Then setting out on our own
to stake some land,
take a wife
and make a family,

And, building a home,
plant a garden
of our own;
Naming it the Garden of Eden

So that it would never again be lost
to our children who would always know it
for the way home...
