Title Forsaken
Description FORSAKEN Jewel King Larsen 465 South 100 East St. George, Utah 81*770 Professional Division Honorable Mention Poetry Kie great house stands in silent disrepair) Blind eyes focused on the past. The battered door hangs lircply on one hinge? The once brave roof sags sadly in despair. A metal fence that once kept children in. Leans drunkenly against its crumbling base. The apple tree that children loved to climb, Its leafless limbs creak dismally In the wind. Long years ago, a young man brought his hride, To enrich their life within these sheltering Halls; Children cane, the old house echoed with their criesj Sow It seems to sigh with grief it cannot hide. A family once had joy and pleasure here; Some sorrow also rounded out its tine of use, But now the young have flown, the parents gone; Sot one is left who held this house so dear. There is no object In this world so sad, As a once-proud dwelling from which life has fled. Could it but speak, what stories It couli tell, Of thoughts and deeds and folk both good and bad. Sourcet This poem was written about an old house that stood in Spring City when the writer was a child. -2k-
