One at first

A tree finer than all others

Fear surrounds them, shadows darken

Generations upon generations pass

I lift my eyes in search of other sweet fruit

I watch as they reunite

Men and women no longer recognize Eden

Might they yet find solace?

She whispers to him

Was he the first to lose a diamond?
