Second Book of Genesis

x

God kept saying

That it’s good

Creation’s good

Each day of it

x

To be there

Hear the names

Have God speak into our minds

In pre-fall grace

With understanding

There is delight

And faith

In all this

Without they’re being named

Only the day and night

All the animals

Us

And then a time of rest

x

If we had been there

If we could have touched their hands

And drawn them back

From the tree
