He molded Earth from magma’s hot display,
Then cooled her surface with torrential rains.
From deep beneath her mantle, molten fray
Belched lava peaks and buckled mountain chains.
The washing waters coalesced in seas,
And life marine, from depths of ocean mire,
Emerged unique to match the subtleties
in flashing speeches from Creative Fire.
When seeded plants and sentient beasts from soil
Were born, God shaped Mankind and breathed us warm
To guard, as servants, Terra’s gifts with toil,
But we succumbed to lying Serpent storm.
With Eden lost, our race’s case was dire,
Then Adam’s son, to worship, built a fire.
