“It is good,” said the Lord of this day;
My creation now ready for pure joy.
Day six, I will form in My Image
And breathe love into Adam, my boy.

Let’s walk together and call all the beasts;
Give them a name for dominion you will own,
Over birds in the air, and fish in the sea;
This Earth, for your sacred home.

So God and Adam did speak,
For fellowship was made special in this one.
God instructed, Adam listened, as they walked,
Through a perfect Garden, warmed by the sun.

But Adam did notice, and spoke,
“So God, all these beasts have a mate.”
Said God in omniscient response,
“So Adam, would you like a date?”



A deep sleep came upon this Adam- man;
For a sequel was about to take place.
God snatched up a rib from Adam’s bare chest,
To form “Eve”, giver of “Life”, soft face.

Introductions, a marriage, ---God’s creation.
Specific instructions on which to abide.
“She shall be called a ‘woman’,
Meant to be here by my side.”

Day six, both morning and evening,
“It is good”, said the Lord of today.
“Day seven, my Glory shall come back to me
Heaven and Earth, completed in such vast array.”

Genesis 1:31: God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning—the sixth day.

nice story about God,s most awesome creation, Man.
Maybe it was suppose to be that way but I found it quite hard to read with the uneven, irregular flow. Good job.

Very creative idea to put the creation of man (and woman) into a poem. Nice job!

I loved this, especially since I've been focused on the begining of Genesis lately. Truly delightful.
