My Brothers Keeper

My Brothers Keeper

A Poem by Tate Morgan

I enter this poem in recognition of the fine spirit we all know here as Bluessadmood,In him I see our best character OUR FINEST HOUR! Thank you


ha ha ..its me too lights as usual..thats home ...Iraq..i just arrived optimistic ..ha ha..oh life how funny you are

Our friend Bluessadmood

Who is the happier of us

one that shines within all others sight

Is he the man who attends his ways

to then walk among us by this light


For oh the pains this life lays on us

then ask that we should ever prevail

To wish to live a long and fruitful time

account for ourselves and tell the tale


Spare us this we might be forgotten

tempted more than once we will endure

In us live the dreams of ancestors

of some noble conscience I am sure


Is it not our generous spirit

to that our nature’s highest dower

Ambling now it holds fast our heart

to rescue us in our finest hour


So help yourself to the least of us

help them pick up and carry the wares

Only then can we ask for ourselves

to find another who really cares


As every rock and tree bears witness

with him walks no company despair

He is the man we all wish to be

the moral being within his care

I write this tonight with a friend in mind.I dedicate it to the indomitable spirit we all know here as Bluessadmood .For in him I see our finest hour. Blue is a doctor in Iraq. The horrors he has seen would make us flinch. Yet he still has a upbeat attitude and should be commended .

three years i have been here on the cafe..yes..with my lots of knowledge about literature
and the deep love i feel for it ,it was my life..yes i helped a lot around here
i helped so many..i spent long nights reviewing others and trying to find the best
and try make them known to all..i loved this place so i wanted it to be filled with some wonderful talents
really at times i felt it was home..i even wrote about it..this place and so many faces here fill me with joy and pride
as i read their great short i really got addicted to logging on to here
i just could not stay away..

A lovely tribute to Blues and wonderfully written.

Having just now returned from travels around the states, I've already learned a few new 'British' words... in this case 'dowers.' This is a tightly-themed poem, one that pulls the reader into the story/life of Bluessadmood. The rhyming is good as usual (lines 2-4 throughout), but the meter suffers, especially in the first two stanzas. I don't mean the feet are out of kilter in any significant way, but the mix of accented syllables makes the reading difficult (uneasy mix of masculine and feminine endings perhaps). The first line caught my attention in as much as the rest of the stanza implies the presence of more than two people whereas 'happier' is a two-way comparative adjective (happiest would be better for a three or more comparison). And, 'others' in the second line deserves an apostrophe. Ah, yes... I can just feel my critical mind kicking back into gear after a few weeks away. Good writing, my friend.

A little off your earlier poems. This is good too. After reading all of your childhood fantasy poems, this really felt different and sincere. I especially love the first and last stanzas. Keep writing :)

Oh Tate, this was so touching and sincere. Yes, I too have been touched by this wonderful man's spirit, humility and endless compassion and caring. Blues stands tall among men and a sweeter friend, one could not have. I am lucky to know this treasured member of the cafe and lucky to have another friend who is also caring and shares his beautiful spirit with us through this wonderful poem. Bravo Tate!
