: Who is the author of this poem?

: When the flush of a new-born sun fell first on Eden's green and gold,
: Our father Adam sat' under the Tree and scratched with a stick in the mould;
: And the first rude sketch that the world had seen was joy to his mighty heart,
: Till the Devil whispered behind the leaves, "It's pretty, but is it Art?"

It's by Kipling, and it's called "The Conundrum of the Workshops".
