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.

What is it? - Poetry by Marjorie H Morgan


What is is?

What is it
that makes a man
walk fifty miles
in the noon heat
for water?

What is is
that makes a woman
give the last scratched grain
to her stick-liuke child
to eat?

What is it
that makes
the weak hand
hold tightly to the still weaker one
crossing the humanly hostile plain?

Hope.

(1997)
