Chapter one or chapter two?

From the September 1998 issue of The Christian Science Journal

In Genesis chapter one we read:
"And God saw every thing that he had made,
and, behold, it was very good."

What do you do with chapter two?
Let it go—the mortal record is not so,
not good, not real, nor true.
Repent. Change your thought,
Return to chapter one
where God spake and it was done,
and see—behold—reality.

Know that right where evil seems to be
is God's "very good," His perfect whole,
attributes of reigning Soul.
And the opposite Adam-named mistaken view,
distorted claim of what is true,
mere twisted tale of serpent chatter,
melting mist of matter clatter—
disappears in light of chapter one understood:
"And God saw every thing that he had made...."
You wake to see what God has done.
"... and, behold, it [is] very good."
