Title The Apple Tree Swing
Description THE APPLE TREE SWING Elva A. Christiansen Manti, Utah Honorable Mention Poetry, Senior Division It was evening time at the close of day, Night shadows were creeping -Hiding the sun's last ray. The Lilac bush - its perfrume rare, Blended fragrance with those blossoms fair. Two blue birds in the branches high, Were chirping good night lullabies To three baby birds snug in their nest, When all creation takes its rest. Apple trees blooming that had crossed the plains; They were hearty seedlings When they came with ox train. A pole had been placed Between the branches wide; An extended rope fastened both sides. Many children's laughter one could hear As they swing to and fro with seldom a fear. More than three score and ten Have these trees sent forth apples bright -Delicious to taste Touched by sun's light For those who sit in our apple tree swing. 4
