Exodus from paradise ( A villanelle)

Curiosity exploits naivete
By an innocent stroll and a prying goal,
Where the snake of temptation rises in play.

Where confusion can turn the mind to souffle
And our sense and patience emigre control
Curiosity exploits naivete.

While temperance and license lie down by the way
The light of a goal loses sight of the soul,
Where the snake of temptation rises in play.

To reach a green bay and to sail Mandaly
Our sails must glean and stay a better enroll
Curiosity exploits naivete.

For death's constant shadow shows full every way
And only cajole dances round the maypole,
Where the snake of temptation raises in play.

The dye to paradise must apply each day
In our stroll in our goal in our whole and dole
Curiosity exploits naivete,
Where the snake of temptation rises in play.

Me, Sy!! I do! Any attempt at a villanelle deserves appreciation and this one does have good qualities.
