eden

dawn whisper honeysuckle dew
earth bloom dahlia sweet
river sing lilypad melody
sun weave daffodil gown

tiptoe on lush grassleaves
gather that pretty blossom
frolick under smiling starlight
serenade the little fairies

eat any fruit no snakes here
careful utopia is fragile-sterile
no temptation just quiet bliss
not from past pain but ignorance

seek heart's desire love peace joy
wealth's not here only fools allowed
no death plenty of time to think what if
nurture seeds of doubt let it overgrow

watch it crowd out peach apricot apple
death is a novelty unbalances order
told you be careful utopia's shattered
garden's gone but not yet joy
