Title With or Without a P
Description They came with pick and plowshare to dig the virgin sod, They came with skill and self-reliance and a mighty faith in God. They did not come for fortunes, wealth or shining gold, They only hoped to plant the seeds of things we now behold. So let us bow in reverence and glorify their names And honor them within our hearts, and in our halls of fame. * * * WITH OR WITHOUT A "P" Martha Rae Olsen P. 0. Box 18 Ephraim, UT 84627 Non-Professional Division Third Place Poetry A reunion in Ephraim is really a treat, There's no telling how many cousins you'll meet. They come from all over, the young and the old, To renew past kinship and leave no tale untold. Now my Danish ancestors were really unique, They settled in Sanpete--the good life to seek* Their surnames we honor, they passed them on down, And it seems I'm related to half of the town. Now the Thomson name is in a bit of a mess, No one is sure just how to spell it, I guess. Some put in a "P" and some folks leave it out, But we all are related, there isn't a doubt. When we all get together and add up the facts. And all of those Danishmen get in the act, We go back in time, to find Dorthea A., With a "P" in her name came to the USA. 84
