1. Bereisheet/In the beginning


From chaos began the creation,

Each flora and fauna its station.

The water and sky,

The earth they wind by,

Last Adam, who had to be patient.


2.


How, God-knows, some processes start.

Dew-mist and sweet rain played their part.

Gahn Eiden's lush grown,

Beasts named. Man's alone:

A helpmeet for Adam seemed smart.


3.


Paradise. A serpent got loose

And gave the first woman a goose.

"All knowing you'll be;

Just eat from this tree."

Eve's blamed when they're nabbed for the ruse.


4.


Of two brothers' gifts, one was druthered.

No matter how well they were mothered,

Cain did poor Abel in,

And was marked for his sin.

Then Adam and Eve had another.
