Title The Indian Call
Description Through everlasting covenant we seal our kindred dead In countless generations with Jesus at our head. May we all come here worthily in humble lowliness To sense the glory of the Lord and feel His holiness. May all live for the blessings bestowed on us today, And stay true to the covenants till life shall pass away. May all revere this sacred place and feel a glorious thrill When they behold the splendor of God's temple on the hill. (Vic Frandsen, born 1901.) THE INDIAN CALL Ellen L. Tucker Fairview, Utah Senior Division Second Place Poetry One morning many years ago Where Sanpitch River does swiftly flow Stood a humble cottage, its chimney tall, With adobe walls and windows small. Inside the laughter of children rang, Keeping harmony with the birds who sang. A pioneer mother and her children four, Were partaking of breakfast when close to the door, A whistle was heard, they trembled with fear, Wondering what dangers could be so near. It sounded like an eagle's cry As it was soaring high in the sky. The door was opened with trembling hands. What could this be in this new found land? There standing in the early morn, Was an Indian brave in moccasins worn. With braids of black and adorned in feather, A son of Lehi clothed in leathers. He humbly asked for a share of bread As he gazed upon each little head. His portion received with eager hand, He silently faded to join his band. Time has passed by since I was small, But still lingering in my heart is "The Indian Call." (Ellen L. Tucker, born March 24, 1900.) -44-
