The greatest sin

By X. Z. Shao

The greatest sin
is to have made Eve eat the Apple.
The greatest love
is to urge Eve put an apple back.
But to achieve the later,
a threat of the fire of hell,
a sword barring an access to
the Tree of Life simply don't work.
An ocean of compassion,
most subtle, tireless persuasions
like a breeze’s talks to a tree
have been tried,
without much guarantee of success.
