The Garden Myth

Michael Peach

Which faith will revive first the Garden Myth?
Will it be Judaism? Or are most Jews
Too urbanized to feel its sacred truth?

Will it be Christianity? Or shall
Apocalyptic dreams prevent believers
From trying to restore our Mother Earth?

Will it be Islam? Or are most modern Muslims
Afraid of being labelled primitive
In a world fooled by fell globalization?

Will it be, rather, individuals
Who know that without the Garden man is doomed
To build on earth the hell which was once a myth?
