The Spirit planted a garden on its holy mountain in the east.
It was sown with trees whose fruits were blazing jewels:
diamond, sapphire, and agate, emerald, sardonyx and cornelian, opal,
beryl, and topaz, malachite, garnet and amethyst.
In the centre of the garden grew the tree
of life; four streams, of milk, honey,
wine and oil issued from its roots.
The golden leaves and bright, crimson jewels which adorned
its branches, surpassed in beauty all the other created things,
and its glorious crown threw a radiant shadow over the garden.
The garden in the east was tended by Yva, the mother of all living.
