Title Fantasies Re-lived
Description FANTASIES RE-LIVED Halbert S. Greaves 19* Herbert Avenue Salt Lake City, Utah 84103 Professional Division First Place Poetry Remember youthful dreams, hopes and fears That you have kept alive throughout the years| Look back when old-and then, behold! The world of youthful magic reappears. Long ago, on a morning in July, I walked in valley meadowa west of town And saw a silver cloud rolling down The valley floor. It blotted out the sky. Then I set my teen-age fancy free, And the cloud, which had enveloped me, Became a monster-as in stories I had read- And I pretended to be filled with dread. In that playful mood, I closed my eyes "Expecting" to be seized, but to my "surprise" The monster gently kissed my hands and face With moistened llpa and left me in my place. Decades later, where dry path met snow On mighty Heather-maker, Mount Rainier, ¦ - *¦-.--. . ¦ (As it is called by people who live near) "'' "' "" ' ' I watched a great fog down below Rushing toward us up the mountain slope. My young son, with childlike fear and hope, Asked, as fog and night advanced: win we lose our way And be unable to go bank by light of day? But it moved fast to where we were and past, And left us standing there in silent awe As the flimsy curtain that we saw Concealed the massive mountain from our view While we marvelled at the magic nature knew. That was the way the valley-monster caMe When rising sun beat down and kissed The cool, danp meadows west of town, --ff.f" Creating there a faint, friendly mist ' ¦' - To rise and greet the cloud and so proclaim That heaven and earth together, as a team, Can give a young boy's mind a timeless dream. -21-
