Title Castle Garden Satation
Description HOMORABLE MENTION POETRY CASTLE GAEBEN STATION June B. Jensen 575 West 800 South Orem, Utah 84058 The migrating family huddled together in old-country dark season weather. With bundled belongings at their feet, there was no "Godspeed 'til again we meet." Mack proclaimed, "By steerage we'll sail»" while Ane soothe.d the baby's wail. Two small sisters clasped each hand so the shore dimmed on their native land. Crude bunks reeked with immigrant fare, yet hope hovered there amidst tearful prayer. Would the Station be an "Isle of Tears" and the gate swing shut to confirm their fears? A trumpet sounded a summons on deck and all heads bowed to pay last respect. As the ocean heaved, she groaned aloud while churning waves claimed a sail-cloth shroud. Could there be a peaceful sleep in the black unknown of angry deep? Ane's hand felt the child's hot breath, she prayed to banish the thought of death. The lowest deck was dark and narrow. Storms and sickness bid each tomorrow. Yet weary eyes greeted the TOHCH held high as FREEDOM unfurled against the sky. Through entry pass there was no want to plead for a tiny grave was the first need. The quilt wrapped form she clutched ever fast - "Aye Mack, the night afore last." 111
