creation of man

first clay to last man standing

union of all life


Linda Lee Lyberg

Carpe Diem #1309 Earth’s First Clay

This quatrain tells us about the first man, Adam, created from the Earth’s first clay, but with this creation he also created the last man …

Here is the quatrain:

With Earth’s first Clay They did the Last Man’s knead,
And then of the Last Harvest sowed the Seed:
Yea, the first Morning of Creation wrote
What the Last Dawn of Reckoning shall read.
