After a fashion

And thus the Lord
 created Adam
 and furnished unto him Eden

And Adam
 plucked the fruit
  too early

And, lo, Adam was dismayed
 and he called unto the Lord
 “Lord, why hath thou forsaken me?
 “I have tasted of your fruit
  and have found it hard and bitter.”

The Lord saw before Him
 the morning of His Glory —
 Perfection in every blade of grass,
  every seed, and every hair on Adam’s head.

And the Light of God’s Grin
 shown upon Adam
 “Adam, it is your own fashioning.
 “And I assure you:
  there is not a bad thing in Eden,
  not even your fashioning.”
