Note: The Nile thought to be the river Gihon which
once flowed out of the Garden of Eden. There had
been suggestions that the Garden of Eden was once
somewhere in present-day Ethiopia.
The Blue Nile blessed with goodness
Flooded plains welcomed
Providence gave helping hand
Fertile soil brought greenery
One-time Garden of Eden
Paradise on Earth
Wherefore apples and serpents
Was it climate change or what!
