Foundations

Foundations

A Poem by Tate Morgan
"

So each man will look back in time taking stock in the life he led To find if he is left wanting and for who and what he has bled

"





Heir to the dreams of this fathers heart,Tatertot.


Man can work sunrise to sunset

and thereby finding none of joy

Look far to the past for comfort

to the days when he was a boy

 

The pleasures come in kind smiles

confirming both field and station

Building along the path of life

friendships that speak to foundation

 

A native son of the Midwest

my life and soul are both free

What I wish to share with my child

is that sweet gift once given me

 

So each man will look back in time

taking stock of the life he led

To find if he is left wanting

and for who and what he has bled

 

Those times I see in my own child

of any things he missed there’s none

Creating dreams he’ll long cherish

watching him grow in Midwest sun

Author's Note

Tate Morgan
I often wish if only all children could be so blessed. To be shined on by providence. Born a native son to the Midwest.

"watching him grow in midwest sun"--such a beautiful image to end this piece with--my favorite line.

This has your signature texture and style oozing from each stanza and every line. I love the way that you shed light on the human condition by way of your undying passion for those who you hold so dear. To say that your writing is inspiring is an understatement; well written and constructed pieces that really have a depth and complexity that brings light to the dullness.

Thank you rico i like this one myself as i am partial to the child in us all
I can't say that I can relate to the Midwest passions and pleasures, to which you refer, as I have only known a lifetime of happiness on the East and West Coasts of this glorious country. However, I revel in the happiness that my five children, and theirs, enjoy, and their lust for life. I so appreciate your writings, as you always leave us with a feeling of well-being and faithful suggestion.......Barbz

A stirring look at the human condition and all we hope for our children. We all want to give the best of ourselves to our children.
