Title The Old Water Pail
Description The breeze picks up the echo and carries it to the far ends of our city. Oh, Daddy, keep playing, play on and on and on. THIRD PLA.C2 POETRY THE OLD WATER PAIL Wilford Wheeler Box 226 Fairview, Utah 84629 Please listen my children and I'll tell you a tale of the long-handled dipper and the old water pail. I«ow the eld "pail was filled with the emblem 01 truth when I was a boy in the days of my youth. From the moss-covered bucket with nice mossy smell, with the coldest of water from the neighbor's deep well, It was then carried straight, for that was the rule, to bring it right back to the old country school. Then the long-handled dipper was hung by its side, inviting all children its contents imbibe. How well I remember when the weather was warm, at the end of recess to the bucket we'd swarm. Jrom the long-handled dipper, and it never did fail, we dipped and we drank from the old water pail, To quench all our thirst when we were so wet from playing a game that made us all sweat. Now through all of the years I remember the tale of the long-handled dippers and the old water pail. But of all the cold drinks that I have enjoyed none will compare with one from the dipper when I was a boy. But the dipper and bucket, alack and alas, have long been replaced by the faucet and glass. 5
