Title Reminiscences
Description REMINISCENCES Dewey S. Olsen 206 South 1st East Preston, ID 83263 Senior Citisen Division Third Place Poetry My youth was spent on the nountain, That wonderful Manti mountain That conceals the rays of the rising sun Till the light has filled the valley. I watched the golden bright noon race From one dark cloud to a new hiding place, Just daring me to catch it, Then disappear for a time. I marveled as those beautiful clouds Formed sculptures of various fonts, A beautiful face, a castle, a tree. Or a lovely scene from yesteryear. I thrilled as a soft, sweet summer breeze Caressed my cheek, or ruffled my hair. And then I watched a sunset glow And wondered if God were there. I heard the saucy chipmunk chirp And saw him flick his tail As he dashed up a post, then stopped to scold Before running down the top fence rail. I saw the glean from the temple spire, As the first rays of the sun Made it appear translucent; And I wondered if it were real. I watched the last light of the day Climb to the Mountain's highest peak, Till the topmost point was crowned with gold, Then vanish into oblivion. All these events, and many more, Made my young heart sing. I closed my eyes and dreamed of what The next bright day might bring. -97-
