Sometime, somewhere in the East Lands,
there was a spot relieved by four rivers,
right place to settle shadowed a garden.
A traveling Potentate loved the scenery,
took possession of it, there building
magnificent a manor house.
Having not a hermit’s heart and His will
for creation unsatisfied,
and applying unsuspected powers,
He created, to Him and His peers’ likeness,
the beginning of a new nation, which he named
Love and the desire to create, the bequest
we were awarded from our Lord
has lead us to populate and stretch out
the once Garden of Eden.
