Morgan has been writing poetry for many years.  Some of his poems stand alone, while others grew out of the same inspiration as specific paintings.   In these instances, they are meant to be presented together to capture a poetic moment.   "Trees of Other Colors" below is an example of such a pairing.

Trees of Other Colors

 

Alone, cultivated, we rest trim
knowing ourselves to be unique
whether in field or forest,
a tree of another color.

 

And while we can change
to the frost of the seasons
and winds of world's summers,
we cannot move to be
something we are not.

 

We are proud to lend shade
and fruit, and breath to clouds.
We support, and screen and beautify
and we are, simply,
trees of other colors.
