A Poem by Tate Morgan

Coming home from where I had been retracing steps from here to there Has brought my life full circle now bringing back the lessons I share


            tate and paige
  Tate and his cousin Paige in the 50 ft swing we built 


The water's edge rose to meet me

while either side the river lie

Across the bridge and path I ran

past tall fields of both wheat and rye


To the meadow where my home sat

there childhood dreams were born and died

I followed the path that life led

my favored angel at my side


Here were crafted my hopes and dreams

from hence I’d come to test my skill

To find the place where I belong

perhaps upon some distant hill


Coming home from where I had been

retracing  steps from here to there

Has brought my life full circle now

teaching me the lessons I share


I had set out to find my purpose

only my own life did I see

But finding love in coming home

my treasured soul had found all three



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

Dear Tate,

As always a beautiful and romantic piece. However this one is perhaps even more romantic than usual. And I agree. How happy a home filled with loved ones. Money can't buy this. Nothing can replace this. This is what completes us and gives us our sense of purpose and meaning.

A nice one, Tate. Very much enjoyed.

Best regards,

Tate writes fine poetry, I`ve read a number of his poems and thay are excellent - careful, considered imagery, lots of attention to the rhymes and line length, simply good writing.

Excellent work again, and as one who shcildhood homes have been torn down due to progress or lack thereof, one can never truly go home again, but we are the sum total of those places from which we draw our roots. Well written, very clearly told

This is a great poem and the ending especially is great! You must have a great home! Keep it up!

Hauntingly beautiful... You take a scene and set it to a blank piece of paper and soon you start to see just what it is you are searching for in this great place we call life. Sometimes we all forget..

The music just make it all the better.. Wow!
