A Full Life

A Full Life

A Poem by Tate Morgan
"

A wild filly of a daughter whose never had her spirit broke Who never took to the bridle nor has she bent beneath life's yoke

"


Rebecca and our granddaughter Payton on her first day of life.




With you I share my greatest joys

a heart that never feels alone

The house, our home, where we belong

grander treasures I've never known


 

Our grandchild alight with beauty

that shines bright as the soul within

Who's never known disappointment

nor the weight of a single sin


 

To that I add my own young boy

who likes to spend his time with me

Tossing a baseball back and forth

living treasures from life's own tree


 

A wild filly of a daughter

that never had her spirit broke

Who never took to the bridle

nor has she bent beneath life's yoke



 That look, that smile, your knowing, glance

like a stroll through the summer wheat

I lay my pen in reverence

upon the ground beside your feet

Author's Note

Tate Morgan
After my divorce Tate and I spent a few years with only ourselves as immediate family. Such was the catharsis that led me to begin writing. He and I bonded, in a struggle to overcome the odds against us. Then came the day I met Rebecca. Sometime after I began dating her Tate said to me. "That's the one for you. Marry Her!". The same idea was going through my mind. So it was to be that she accepted the proposal. Since then Rebecca has added to our clan so much. It nearly overflows with children, nephews, nieces, and relatives of every kind.
It was said that Leonardo Da vinci once was apprenticed to a master painter. His master came over with his brushes to investigate Leonardo's progress on a painting. Upon looking at his apprentices work. It was reported a tear flowed down his cheek. He lay his brushes at Leonardo's feet and never picked them up again.
Such is the case with Rebecca.
Thank you Becky
Written for my beloved wife's birthday this month. May she have a good day .

Yes, this is really good Tate, capturing both the love and gratitude for your wife and grand daughter. Isn't it amazing the tremendous power that the perfect innocence of a newborne has over us? So easily they can bring us back into our own innocent memories... Thank you for this.
