Title Remembering
Description HSiQKBERUJG Bffie 0. Nielson 1530 East 3080 South Salt Lake City, Utah 6^106 Judges' Hotei This entry was not included in the judging because it does not meet the criteria of any of the categories. However, the judges unanimously considered it worthy of publication. When I was but a wee small tot We had a big house with a garden plot He had horses and pigs and chickens too We had cows that would stand by the gate and moo Sometimes ole Bess would like to stray Sometimes it was Mollie that wanted, to stay We had to get them rain or shine Like the cows quite often we'd take our time And dark tho it was when we got to the gate I liked this house with lilacs and trees I even like our neighbor 'Weze" Her name was Louise but we called her that She always had time to stand, and chat. In the summer our barn was clear full of hay When Dad wasn' t around we" d romp ?^nd play Me knew it wasn't the thing to do It left only stems for the cows to chew. We had trees by our granary where the birds would sing r We had Blue Birds and Robins and Meadow Larks too They each had a song they were singing to you The Meadow Lark said "Utah is a pretty little place" The Robin said "I like this space* The Blue Bird sang "Happiness dear" The Black Bird said 'Spring, Spring, Spring is here". And Spring was here for sure we knew The wind, then rain, then skies of blue The snow was melting with mud everywhere The smell of growing was in the air Little rivers of water ran down our lane All this made the Duck Spring pasture green again. When the sun came out and would dry one spot Out would come stilts, and Ginnie and marbles the lot All nine of us kids would really plot Because games at our hotise were seldom bought -108-
