A poem about the Book of Genesis.
In the beginning, so the tale begins, A story of creation, of life's winds. From darkness, light and life did flow, God's hand upon the world to bestow.
The skies and earth, the waters blue, From nothingness, their forms renewed. And then, the creatures great and small, From the lion's roar to the sparrow's call.
Yet sin and strife did soon take hold, As Adam and Eve their fate foretold. From Eden's garden, they were cast away, A debt of sin that all must pay.
The history of patriarchs, it unfolds, From Abraham's call to Joseph's dreams foretold. With brothers' envy and sold into slavery, A tale of redemption and family's bravery.
From creation's dawn to man's fallen state, Genesis tells the story of life's great fate. Of God's love and grace, and of human will, A tale of triumph and failure, yet living still.
