In the new Eden

Collecting apples in the Garden of Eden was a sin

I won’t commit the same act, I am not dim

An Eve of a new dawn, collecting peaches instead

Whilst nursing strawberries in their straw beds

The march is cancelled, but the date is still on

I’ll be gardening here, when they have all gone

It will be quiet on Earth without all their noise

But I will tinker on in solitude and poise

I am a raven who has lost her wings

But louder now the angels sing

For I have a new path that I must take

And not a foot wrong should I make

To grow a new garden for the King and son

For a new age has just begun
