Before Sin Arrived

They lived long ago when the world was young
and in peace and plenty  abided.
Some roamed the land dressed up in fur.
Hard armor to some was provided,

They did not ask from whence they came
nor question the where of their going.
They were quite contented with their lot
and had no need of knowing.

The meat eaters didnít waste their food.
They killed only what they could eat.
They lived by God given instinct,
with no sinning and no deceit.

It went on like this for eons.
God created and then refined.
He wanted to populate the Earth
with these beings of every kind.

It was after He created man
from a handful of dry sod
that sin descended onto earth.
Man broke the laws of God.

Given free will, Man took the reins
and traversed the whole of Earth.
And that is how Sin came to be
and wrongs and troubles stirreth.

Eden is hard to imagine... that is to say a life without sin, even into the heart of man.  Wonderful couldn't begin to describe it.

I have been away too long, and glad I came tonight to read this lovely piece Joyce.
