In The Garden (2) - Poem by Gert Strydom

In the garden the woman had to guard against the snake
and then on his insistence she did take the fruit and did bite into it
as she did find Lucifer's tempting game glorious and good.

Unobserved he did bite into her soul
while darkness did stretch around them
and then on his insistence she did take the fruit and did bite into it.

They did cover their nakedness,
did hide away from the presence of God
while darkness did stretch around them.

God did promise to dirty Himself with their sin
where they were scared and did hide,
did hide away from the presence of God

and the love and mercy of God did come to life
while they did not regard the commandments and love of God
where they were scared and did hide

and they did not expect his salvation.
In the garden the woman had to guard against the snake
while they did not regard the commandments and love of God
as she did find Lucifer's tempting game glorious and good.
