Love Child

Love Child

A Poem by Tate Morgan

In her I saw myself one day a cold spirit needing tending And in her face I saw the way to happiness she was rending



I crossed over a young girl's path

who had stooped and bent for hours

There she escaped to love from wrath

while she tended to her flowers


In her I saw myself one day

a cold spirit needing tending

While in her face I saw the way

to happiness she was rending


Simple things of a little girl

who swayed in the breeze that came through

Tousled curls all wrapped in a swirl

crowned top a smile that the wind blew


So take the gifts that you have earned

then turn out surcease from despair

To reap the pearls others have learned

echoing childhood calls "be fair"

With pride deposed and passions slain

we hope, aspire and then on trust

Beneath vaulted skies we attain

to master life before we're dust



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

Author's Note

Tate Morgan
Simple pleasures are their own reward. People we don't need 15 pairs of acid or stone washed jeans. That come in 28 different sizes and cuts. Happiness comes from needing little and giving much. If you learn to be content everything else is an unexpected joy.

i am speachless yet it makes me sad with the children of today i reach out in prayer if i can't go that far to little spirits like that this was just so lovely it touched and Broke my heart so beautiful Life is too short to wast i will agree on that looking with a pure child like heart also helps us see the things we are blind to thats how i see life even though some of the world is currupt we can't allow the curruptness to stop us from enjoying the small littel beautiful things of life like our life early morning sun sets Beuatiful funny shapes in the clouds god gives us so amazing make our hearts smile and that little happiness and laughter is good for us make the day well worth living every day. Thank you for sharing my friend you always have such beautiful and wise words May God bless you and your family always i hope you're well and your family as well take care lily :)

By the way this is going into my favorites

Oh my, there is such a thing as a "mastery" of life? I'm certain I shall never attain it. I'm still in awe of butterflies and caterpillars. (smile) Your poem was a pleasure to read. Bless.

Like everything from you, this is absolutely breath taking. You are quite right...we tend to hoard more than we need...while others go without.
And then we dare to wonder why there is so much suffering in the world....

This is truly a beautiful piece. Honestly, every time I read an entry in this site, I am surprised by how much all these entries and writings affect me. I am still a child myself, someone who cannot truly be independent yet who isn't completely dependent. I'd just like to say that, as far as childhood goes, I didn't work for myself.

Seeing, watching, and knowing that many children of today still suffer from 'child labor' because of poverty... it hits me, right in the heart. Because my whole life I've never truly imagined it can happen. And it did. It had been happening way before I was born.

As you've said, in a little child's simple and innocent ways, we see ourselves. Who we will be one day. What could possibly happen, what we could possibly end up becoming in the future. As I write this, I remember that we all must have suffered one way or another, that we all must have seen a thing or two that gives us a new perspective.

I love the last two lines, by the way. It's one of the things that people of today have forgotten. Or they seem to, in my point of view.

Good job again!
