Mourn not Eve

I'm not tempting Adam
there's no serpent in the tree
I'm the one who saw the fruit
that's waiting there for me

I'll let no angry angel
exile me from my share
I'm staying in the garden
my rightful place is there

A jealous god would banish
and hold his knowledge fast
but not the loving goddess
her wisdom spread will last

Thanks to The Mag
