Her Name Was Eve

Gwendolyn Thomas Gath

Book Excerpt Page 47 From the Heart of an Artist Quiet Storm


...They turn to her

Then point and say

Her name is Eve

She caused it all


For she was there at the

Beginning of time

With a love so pure

For all mankind

From him she came
Then beside him she laid

With the purest of thoughts

She called him by name


He is the man of which

I came

He is the man of which

I lain

Beside so safe

Beside so calm

Beside so peaceful

While she called him

By name
Her name was Eve



From the Heart of an Artist Quiet Storm

good one Gwen, I'm guilty of always beating up on poor Eve, but actually I feel that Adam should have been stronger and resisted biting that apple, anyway it's hard to resist the devil, hugs

YOU said the truth (that I feel) with a quiet and giving heart Gwend!
It takes TWO, was always my take on this heavenly story!
Well done!

Warmest Blessings and Love, Purple Lady Passion, SHEExoo

I think I like your story better than the origional one. Nicely done, Gwendolyn.

Gwendolyn ...
I feel somehow an aching coming from your heart through these words. But then, poetess, what you write is always, to this reader, an honest unveiling of the passionate heart of a quiet storm. Congrats on the book. Blessings to you ...

If anyone blames Eve, then s/he had better also blame himself or herself. I do like the way you provoke thought with your verses, Gwendolyn. Thank you. Love and best wishes to you,

Reviewed by Kate Burnside
I find this so poignant, Gwendolyn. I feel that Eve and Mary Magdalene get such bad press and are so misunderstood. But you have painted her delicate and beautiful here. Truly innocent in the purity of her love for him who was her root, her rock and inspiration. Such control in your writing, its strength for me lying in both its repetitions and gentle, unforceful "understatement". Nice work, thank you. Kate xx

This story has always troubled me, but I like your take on it. Thx, dl
Reviewed by Felix Perry
The symbology of Adam and Eve was I think not so much that Eve was to blame or Adam but that humanity itself was weak and we all share that weakness.

Reviewed by Elizabeth Price
Eve has been unfairly blamed and scapegoated by some people who don't want to take responsibility for themselves. I've never read where Eve put a knife to Adams throat or anything. He had a choice and he made it. He should take half the blame. But when is that going to happen? Excellent poem. Certainly tripped my trigger. Liz
