The Seed - Poem by Barry Middleton

the hand that tilled
the fertile fields of Eden

considered everything
that man might need

he tried to give us
something to believe in

and brought it all together
in a seed

the garden grew
and covered all the earth

but weeds of plunder laid
an evil dew

not God but man
would bring the devil's birth

the sacred mystics came
to warn the few

that man destroys it seems
to me so strange

the gift of life fulfilled
our every need

we've left a job for God
to rearrange

but there is still his love
within the seed

I'll sow his seed and I will
share his love

if you sow too the world
may then renew

when we return what came
from up above

we might reclaim the Eden
we once knew
