The Quest Started Since
The first morn’s yellow flames pulsated
Over the sliver sky’s infinite flank.
Adam, the blessed father of mankind,
Opened his wheat-toned eye lids;
Garnished with golden lashes,
And the delicate membrane gave way
To the heavenly light and air to begin
Their mission in due skill with senses!
Proclaiming and praising the splendor
Of The Merciful, and expressing gratitude
Did he bow on the season-less ground,
While The Bountiful had his mastery
Explained to the Angels and ordered
To prostrate before His new creation!
All, save Satan, did instantly obey the Lord,
While the soothing glory of the lofty house
Witnessed that ecstatic occurrence ever;
Though the epic malice unto man
Was instilled by the Outcast,
Man’s Quest had its run ‘ON’ since then.
