Memories

A Poem by Tate Morgan

Tate and I

Whatever men say in blindness

or in spite of fancies of youth

Nothing's so kingly as kindness

while nothing's so royal as truth



We get back mete as we measure

one cannot do wrong and be right

Nor deal in pain to bring pleasure

for justice avenges each slight



So to the pain of his distress

whose earnings don't tell of his worth

An honest man this life will bless

despite the misfortunes of birth

Well thank you Jack. I like to believe that the best things in life are universally available to all.. read more
read several of you pieces this time of stopping by. enjoyed each. one of the things I enjoy about your work is the natural flow of your rhyme none of it seems forced. also the themes with which you deal are natural, worthy, customary, and common (in the sense of being universal) , yet noble.

Nothing's so kingly as kindness

Thank you Carl. I try to use common language in uncommon ways to address universal experiences.

Wonderful news Tate... congrats for when it occurs!
I like the structure of this poem. It is good. And I know what you mean about memories. One of the scariest things I face is losing them.

Time flies they say but if we can hold onto anything in that flight I hope it's our sweetest memories. I enjoyed the read.

Can’t believe that two years has flown by since I last reviewed this poem Tate. Such a great poem with its strong message delivered so perfectly and succinctly in three short stanzas. A delight to read. Thank you.
