Title Sego Lilly
Description Bonny Nielson Dahlsrud Post Office Box 195 Salina, Utah Non-professional Division Third Place Poetry Sego Lily, stark and white Lift up thy face and welcome light Of Daybreak. Your tailored gown in satin new Is freshly rinsed with summer's dew Of Morning. How proud you stand in wilting sun Your regal head bows down to none At Midday. "Emblem of Peace," Indians nod They will not fight on ground of God At Sunset. Sego Lily glints pearlish blue She rests, and waits the day anew At Twilight. Source: Song of a Century, p. 99 Indians refused to fight on ground where the Sego Lily grows because flower is an "Emblem of Peace." -28- SEGO LILY
