The Creation of Adam


“Long were the days in my labor of love.

The first brought light, the second, the sky;

the third was the ground upon which you walk.

Next came the heavenly bodies with which I see you now.

The fifth, however, was my best;

on this day I created you.

My pride and joy, my greatest achievement;

when I saw you, I knew you were good.”
