Sharing the Apple ~ 1818, John Keats

O blush not so! O blush not so!
Or I shall think you knowing;
And if you smile the blushing while,
Then maiden heads are going.

There’s a blush for won’t, and a blush for shan’t,
And a blush for having done it:
There’s a blush for thought, and blush for naught,
And a blush for just begun it.

O sigh not so! O sigh not so!
For it sounds of Eve’s sweet pippin;
By these loosen’d lips you have tasted the pips
And fought in an amorous nipping.

Will you play once more at nice-cut-core,
For it only will last our youth out,
And we have the prime of the kissing time,
We have not one sweet tooth out.

There’s a sigh for yes, and a sigh for no,
And a sigh for “I can’t bear it!”–
O what can be done, shall we stay or run?
O cut the sweet apple and share it!

Why is it we long for the sweet apple only when
it’s forbidden?

Comment by RDM

Because my dear, there is nothing so satisfying to the eye or the palate, as the simple beauty and crisp juicy bite of the apple. Hence, since Adam and Eve, that sneaky serpent knew its attraction in all of its simplicity.

And anything that is offered, yet forbidden, is so much more alluring. It is human nature at its roots. We simply have to have a taste.

And what price do we pay for this original sin?Are we not encourage to resist the temptations of the serpent?

Comment by RDM

The temptations of the serpent come from a religious story, not the laws of nature. Hence the great debate… : )

I believe our own minds and moral conscience are very strong dictators of right and wrong, and finding our boundaries. We weigh the consequences and make our own choices, knowing that there is always a price for our actions.

For that 10% or so who are with out a moral conscience or an understanding of their own boundaries, and who will actually harm society, they are usually in jail. Sadly, neither a Gods law or mans law will dictate that percentage of society.

Personally, I hope we may never again know the days of when puritan beliefs ruled.

In my opinion, long live the choices of the forbidden fruit.
