The Interlude of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil Between Genesis Chapters Two & Three

o' for the tree that wrought mankind's defeat
with knowledge the fruit so sweet did bear
soon eve, succumbing to the serpent's deceit
while adam in his silence stands there

planted with the Lord's perfect care
the tree in the garden purposefully tended
with clothes of choice the leaves did wear
the fate of all the world amended

it's roots sink deep into the soil
where God has tilled, man would toil
the peace of shalom, soon to be spoiled
the serpent's footsteps resound in the forest
