David Lee Morgan (davidword)

This is the fourth of five poems I wrote when I was 14 and off in the seminary, studying to be a Catholic priest. (The first two were at the beginning of this series.)

THE BALLAD OF EAST AND WEST

If i were half the man 

Who lives within my dreams

Or half the fool who dreams him

Then i would close my eyes

Cast off my fear 

And leap

 

And if i did not fall

Or if my head 

Came down before my feet

It would be over then

And fool and man would meet
