JH Sayyar's Classical Sonnets

First day God separates night from day,
Second day creates the prettiest blue sky,
Third day creates the Earth white and grey,
Fourth day creates the sun Universe-eye.
Fifth day the creatures of earth and air,
All kinds of animals: the urban and wild,
Six-day creates man with the most care,
Seventh day God finishes all affairs mild.
After this creates Eden in the East for man,
And says the man to live among the trees,
But touching the middle tree made it ban
Around it lovely flowers and cool breeze,

So Eve touches the tree and breaks the vow,

So God sends Adam and Eve on earth to sow
