Title Faithful Pioneer
Description The water for the weekly bath was boiler-heated-hot. The tub was small for a grown-up but, large for tiny-tot. (they learned to share a lot) Accompanying a mother's role in grievous, lengthened labor, The birth of babes was accompanied by midwife or neighbor. (the pain cut like a saber) Long-gone courageous pioneers, immortalized by men, Through fearlessness and bravery are a boon now as then (and future where and when) They walked the plains and pulled handcarts or trekked a wagon's wake. They blazed, endured and conquered for Sanpete County's sake! (their chain will never break!) FAITHFUL PIONEER Sherrie A. Hundley Orem, Utah Second Place Poetry Professional Division Faithful pioneer, Trusting God, you left your home behind, To travel far and start anew, And only faith as strong as yours Could take you there And see you through. Did God intend that you should suffer so? I do not know. Hardy pioneer. Trudging on, you brought your family here-- A place you had not seen before, And here you built your new abode And learned to do God's will. Life's trials found you, more and more, Yet did you say a harsh, containing word? I have not heard. -26-
