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 .

ohh my friend Tate,really i dont know what say..words just wont tell how i feel
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..
by the way i hope no one gets frightened by the foto..ha ha

we dont have electricity..and most my writings and reviews
i did on a candle light..still i am so happy i did.blues

I believe some of the others said it even better than I could. I've never read one of your works I haven't enjoyed. Your writing makes me wish I had made the acquaintance of your friend. It is obvious that your work has had an effect on him, too. We should all be lucky enough to have a friend such as yourself.....

Here, here. BSM is a beacon of humanity in grim times, very wise, an acute observe of the human state with an unbroken underlying gentleness that gives hope for civilised ways everywhere.

What a beautiful gesture of respect and admiration to a man who must have made a great impact to many people here. Lovely poem Tate.

As usual your words are like a gentle river that ebs and flows with your readers. The actual meaning is written in such a depth that as usual i wonder if i understand every single letter completly. Your experiences in life that have molded you into who you are have made you wise and this, like all of your writting is like a light shining through.
Sorry it took me so long to read.

Completely beautiful and lovely. What else is there to say?

My only critique if any; change the font to something more elegant and flowing. Ariel can be very harsh and uninteresting.

I absolutely adore this piece. It is a fine dedication to an inspiring author. This was a wonderful read, as always.

What can I say that hasn't been said on this beautiful piece? You write with such dignity and passion that it is no wonder that you are so well liked and loved. Your pen is mighty indeed sir

It's a lovely poem. My only comment is that in the first line of the second stanza, the 'oh' seems out of place. It was still amazing.

Thank you Tate.

Our friend deserves kind words. He, a lone man, has had insults thrown at him over the years, has endured viciousness because of nationality and faith .. yet he's one of the gentlest and kindest men I've found in the Cafe. He's been a true friend to me, not on a regular basis but when I've needed wise words.

And reading his comments below, let me confirm that he is a man who knows literature, not just what the average we learn from anthologies but, eons away.

Great as always. I agree with others here, the last stanza is perfect. Powerful.
