Title Second Generation
Description SECOND GENERATION Eleanor P. Madsen 295 East 1st North Ephraim, Utah Professional Division First Place Poetry You never walked the desolate sands, Nor Indian battles fought. It was not your task to tame the land, Bring water from the mountain springs. Your hands did not mold adobe clay Or hew the rough pine logs. You did not haul the rock and stone For a temple to your God. But, still, you were a pioneer Who blazed the trail for us. The center of your life was work, "Honest toil for honest pay." You did without for other's needs When there was a meager fare. Loyal to your home and country, Guiding your life with prayer. You did not push a hand cart Or eat the sego lily bulbs, But nurtured the seeds they planted, So the harvest could be ours. You made an airway in the sky, Found cures for human ills, Built bridges to a new world, Gave faith to transplant a human heart. -3-
