A Season Once In Eden! ! - Poem by Clarence Prince

When I look back down in life's memory
And I thought of the Adam and Eve story
I considered that man was clothed in glory
But to the taste of a fruit man lost his clothes
Shame stepped in, man sought leaves for cloth
The sound of feet drove him to hide
It was that season once in Eden
Why life for man is, as is

It shouldn't have happened, yet it did
Man to live forever is still just a bid
He was deceived by the evil one
Then life for man was lost once
He was beguiled by evil in disguise
God went in the evening to reason, but....
It was that season once in Eden
Why life for man is, as is

One is wise, His name is God
When you are sad He will be your Dad
If you've done wrong don't try to hide
But, by His side run to abide
By wisdom He re-clothed man
The Lord used skin then to cover sin
It was that season once in Eden
Why life for man is, as is.

    I think today’s clothing designers look back to Eden, …..happy the tree with fruit was there!

    You mean animal skins? Like Opossums’ and wombats’ skins. Poor animals! I hope Eve made the flesh into nice meals.

    Yes well written, just remember that even a God has a name. A Little more research is needed. and it too can be revealed. Nice poem with truth as its theme. Read mine - If There Be No God -

    The fall of man in the garden of Eden. The serpent beguiled me it was
    said. Words of evil was put in my head. A true story with an unhappy
    ending. Well written and well done!
