What would they think of their garden now...


 

We came to seek validity 
Should world be granted a reprieve 
And bring you serendipity 
For I am Adam, she is Eve. 

We gazed upon, despondently, 
The change bestowed our garden green 
Perpetual in its infancy 
Yet withered by cruel concrete scene 

Our wilderness seemed all but lost 
As Nature rallied to her dance 
To mend what decadence has cost 
And stifle that which won't enhance 

We saw how surfeit brought defeat 
And languished there in avarice 
Our spirits dragged their ragged feet 
Through that, which was, our paradise.
