This garden was a beautiful part of the kingdom,

specially designed for their specific needs.

It had the most delicious fruit for them to eat their fill,

beautiful lakes to swim in,

and breathtaking views of high mountain ranges.

It was filled with many other creatures for them to enjoy and take care of

and all kinds of vegetation for them to tend to.

But the greatest joy the garden contained

was that at the end of every day,

the king would walk with them.

Hours they would spend,

listening to the king and his son.

Sharing the discoveries they had made

and the king would just love on them.

Thoroughly enjoying their excitement

over all the surprises they came to find.

Oh, what joy it brought the king,

to see his children delight in everything.

Now in the middle of this garden stood two trees.


spreading out their branches wide.

With fruit as good as all the other ones,

desirable to eat.

One of these trees was called the Tree of Life,

if they would eat of it they would never die.

The other was the Tree of Knowledge.

Eating of it would lead to great darkness for man,

because it was not only knowledge of good it would bring,

it was also the knowledge of every dark thing.

So the king strictly forbade them to eat from this tree,

because it would hurt them tremendously.

Only he was able to bear the knowledge of such wrongs.

It would utterly consume them.
