After Eden

What is the penance, Eve?
Can it be this?
Adam's strong arms that hold
My share of bliss?
A garden where serpents
Coil in despair,
Roses and hollyhocks
Blooming so fair?
A cottage where Love lights
Twin flames that blend
In one white holiness
Faith will attend?
This is the penance, Eve,
Fear is the key,
Lost in the tall silk grass
Under the tree,
Watching and waiting, I
Polish the lock,
Knowing that one may come
Who need not knock.
