The Master's Plan

The Master's Plan

A Poem by Tate Morgan
"

I am sure it will outlive me standing long after my own time Taking note of my grandchildren lending life both music and rhyme

"


Tates Tree Swing

There is a great tree where we live

It's a comfort to have it near

We pass by it every day

it has stood for many a year

 

In the last twenty years or so

as I passed the days of my prime

I found that I kept going back

seeking solace time after time

 

What amounted to years for us

were days in the life of the tree

It stands there stout, towering, firm

be-lying grace that comforts me

 

I'd lie beneath the canopy

where I would stare up at the sky

Watching the leaves blow in the wind

counting the years as they passed by

 

So majestic is this old tree

oh the lives that it's watched over

How many loves have come and gone

amongst the leaves amid clover

 

Yesterday I happened to see

Tate with his girl beneath its arms

Swinging within its warm embrace

while it happily shared its charms

 

I am sure it will outlive me

standing long after my own time

Looking after my grandchildren

sharing love of music and rhyme

 

This tree has watched my son grow up

from a small boy to a young man

Here it stands in graceful beauty

a small piece of the Masters plan

Author's Note

Tate Morgan
The years pass us by so quickly. Sometimes I wonder what has happened to them all. However I am blessed with a loving child who has given me so much. I share these memories with all my friends in reverence to the life and love they have marked.

There are times, as I have stood and watched my child sleep, praying I would always have the answers to their wondrous questions regarding life. And, yes, the years do go way too fast. They gave more than they took.

Well put together Tate. Time flies by in the wink of an eye. Here for a short time. Cherish every minute of it all we can try and accomplish. Simplicity in a nutshell.

Such beautiful poem Tate. The story, rhyme and imagery really caught all my senses. What a life that tree has seen, as generations come and go. Oh for the stories it could tell.
Lovely writing indeed.
