Trouble

Trouble

A Poem by Tate Morgan
"

Seek the heart as long you search wrap it tight in Love's embrace be mindful to it's needs and wants keep it clothed in silk and lace

"
 
My own rendering of ex girlfriend Robyn Cooper and I. She the mother of the little boy Drake, to whom I dedicated my second book.

Tarry not down life's long road

stay quick fleet and true

Weary's the path on which you tread

be mindful of that you do

____________________________

Seek the heart as long you search

wrap it tight in Love's embrace

be mindful to it's needs and wants

keep it clothed in silk and lace

___________________________

Never assume once struck by love

she would not wish you to replace

But learn you hard as she is scarred

the feel of loss from her embrace

__________________________

Take you this from the lips of a sinner

heal the calluses, wounds and sores

The smart man learns from his mistakes

while the wise man learns from yours

Thanks for steering me to this beautiful poem. Love, even love lost, has lessons for us all. We never stop learning as long as we long as we love, as long as we live. I love your last line, "The smart man learns from his mistakes while the wise man learns from yours." Reminds me of a quote from Picasso, "Good artists copy but great artists steal."

Not to overanalyze, but I like the way the action comes before the subject for most of these lines. It emphasizes that the sentences are in the imperative (i.e. issuing advice) and that the advice matters.

Excellent write as always Tate.
