These are my musings and observations on my daily life, loves and the laughter that are all a part of my experience of living now in the shires of England.

untitled - Poetry by Marjorie H Morgan



“Don’t worry,” he said
as he pulled back the sheets
silencing her cries with his large hand
“I’m not going to hurt you,”
he promised

but he did

it hurt for the rest of her life
she worried for the rest of her life

he lied.

(1994)
