Adam And Eve
Poem By Dee Daffodil
My daughter...is a thinking child
I say that, not just as a proud Mom
But as someone
With great admiration and respect for her
Today, after a conversation about gifted people
She came to me and said...
'Mom...who were the first two people on earth? '
I replied 'Adam and Eve'
Then I qualified that with...
'..or so the story goes...'
So then she said to me
(I knew she was setting me up!)
'If they were the first two people on earth
How do we know their names? '
She explained her point of view
Quite nicely I thought...
As only she can do...by hamming it up!
'So...they were in the cave right?
Then Adam says...Eve.....Ugg...cave mess...
Clean it up! !
How did anyone know what their names really were? '
I thought to myself...
Ok...so there's gifted....
And then there's gifted! !
