Title Memories of Sanpete
Description MEMORIES OF SANPETE Ruby F. Thomas Salt Lake City, Utah Non-Professional Division Honorable Mention Poetry 1 was born in "our new house" in Mount Pleasant, Utah. Papa had built it himself, mostly, of cream-colored brick. And there was a porch all across the front, with a porch swing, And room for rocking chair and other chairs beside, To sit on a warm summer day. Grandma Sanderson came from Fairview, for a visit and held me on her lap, As she rocked on the porch, when I was just a baby Way back in nineteen hundred and fourteen. Mama and Papa and my sister Crystal stood nearby. And we had a picture taken. Papa was born in Mt. Pleasant and Mama in Fairview, were prettier, and vice versa. Papa was part owner of a confectionary called Crystal Ice Cream, Got her name. They named me Ruby because it seemed to go well with Crystal , She was blond and I was sort of dark, And our 4th of July dresses were generally blue for Crystal And red for me. For the 4th of July And to visit Grandma Sanderson in Fairview And Grandma Fechser in Mt. Pleasant. There was the patriotic meeting in the church house, And the parade down the street, with the band playing. And Crystal and I each had our own little flags to wave. There was the Rodeo, and an afternoon dance for children. And a night dance for grownups, and even Grandma went to watch. And babies were put on benches to sleep. -105-
