Garden of Eden

Part 1

In Paradise where life began
a wondrous tree grew tall,
that stretched its arms to the tiniest bird,
and gave God's gifts to all.

And Adam and Eve in the evening shade
together sang under the tree.
God sang along in their merry song,
a song so light and free.


next: part two
