“Thou Shalt Not Kill,” Ensign, July 1978, 37

“Thou Shalt Not Kill”

In gold of sun

And green of tree,

They climbed together.

He took her hand

And she took his for mutual aid.


One feared the other higher.

Under cutting words,

The branches fell

Leaving them dangling in their destruction

Of one another.
