A Poem by Tate Morgan


Though now the clouds roll over me

as the west winds have blown

I find I long for distant plains

endless skies I have known


But what to me was east and west

and lure of many lands

could never replace the green grass

with tepid heated sands


For here was where I set my roots

bright summers in the glen

A-wash in colors of the fall

your heart shines now as then 


To see my books click on the pictures to take you to them

You're a lucky man Tate. Not many are as blessed as you to have a wife and a place you've known since childhood. My best wishes to you both.

Thank you relic. It took me 14 years to figure out that I really need to come home
It's amazing how we can feel tethered to a place when our memories so richly fill each corner.
You capture so much more than just the past with this lovely poem.
