FOR EVE, by LEXIE DEAN ROBERTSON Poet's Biography
First Line: And I have felt a pity surge for eve
Last Line: Who kept with adam that first lover's tryst!
Subject(s): Adam & Eve; Bible; Hearts; Love
AND I have felt a pity surge for Eve
Who knew alone the first delights of love.
Sought she some silver pool and leaned above
Its crystal mirror, dreaming? Did she leave
A kiss within its keeping? Must she weave
A fragile web of fancy when the moon
Had lit its new gold lantern? Was it June
In Eden's garden? How could she believe
In love and lovers who had never known
The heritage of olden lover's days?
Who had not wept with Dido left alone
By blue Aegean waters? felt the blaze
Of Juliet's sweet passion?
Much she missed
Who kept with Adam that first lover's tryst!
