Title Bridget
Description So onward he came, with these thoughts in his mind. No regrets of the comforts he had left behind. We thank you dear pioneer, for the blessings we greet, When we come to our homes in the Beautiful Sanpete. BRIDGET Reva Tennant Jensen Santa Maria, California Honorable Mention Poetry Senior Division Bridget was left in Dunfermline When John Shand's Guide ship sailed; "I'll send for you my love, be brave In truth you'll soon be mine." A new Religion, a lusty land Blind faith beconning John-Since Alex and Charley had written "Hoot man-gae'aua quick, 'tis grand." While Bridget prayed and planned In faraway Manti The Scots were greeting John. His cronies from old Scotland. Alex gave him half his hill ('twas richt mindfu O've lad) N' helped him build a hoose for two A-fore the winter chill. Springs fair fields turned brown and gold They had shared the toil of each day, Saving coppers For her journey and wedding briar. Patience ebbing out with the tide Bridget cut her raven locks Sold each braid, filled her jar, With the converts, she sailed with pride. Lads N' Lassies steeped in Melodies With youth, laughter and skills Devotion, justice and faith Made Manti a city of trees. -28-
