 In the Beginning
 Chronicle  I
  
  
 In the beginning there
 Was nothing outside of Heaven
 So, in the beginning
 God decided
 To create
 For Himself
 A World
  
 He hummed, “You know, Son
 We have so much to share
 Of kindness
 Love, joy
 Sometimes I feel
 Like
 I might explode
 Or implode
 I cannot hold
 It all in
 any longer.”
  
 So with a whirl
 And a twirl
 And a small jiggle
 Or was it a wiggle
 God created
 His earth.
   
 Gleaming, shining 
 With life
 It glowed
 Just to show
 Its Creator’s Glory, 
 This story of 
 His Love
 Slowly, He stroked
 With one gentle hand
 The lion’s mane.
 “Look, it’s heart beats
 I think I just
 Might keep 
 This one.
 But you know what 
 I think I need me
 A Man.”
  
 “What is a man, Father?”
 “Just watch.”
 He blew on the dust
 And with one single thrust
 Of one finger
 He raised him from the ground.
  
 God smiled.
 Happy, pleased and joyful,
 He turned to his newest son,
 “Welcome to life, Adam,
 And this,
 Your new Paradise!”
