|"Eve Tempted" Marble @1877 by Hiram Powers|
Frozen in marble,
a single moment should not define her.
Reveals not a tender, mothering hand
nor a life of toil and togetherness
but deep seductive longing;
an Eve whose glory and sorrow
resides in each and every one of us.

I had a hard time deciding which word to use: shame, sorrow, guilt - and a whole handful of others. I finally (I think) chose sorrows as guilt and shame do lead to sorrow. I liked the single syllable sound and the two hard "g's"… but I think it says more with the word sorrow. Hmm… I may change my mind, though.
