Earth over Eden

Woot, I found a short verse which I thought I'd lost in the library a few months ago and cleaning staff had thrown it away, but it was in the pocket of my coat all along, phew!

It’s based on a dream image. Eden is somehow below and I’m scrambling desperately higher to stay on Earth.
I wrote it around the same time as The Great Fisherman of the Sea, and the theme is similar.

I love the universe
And should God tempt me
To fall back into the garden,
I would flee up a spiral stair
To find peace here
Not go back there.
