Title Peace on Earth
Description PEACE ON EARTH Shirley Reynolds Burnside Non-Professional Honorable Mention Poetry I stand and gaze about me And I feel a deep peace I see and feel how pleasant How beautiful, so simple- A peace created in another era. My husband and I stand together His arm outstretched pointing Showing me sites where Ancestors built new homes-Here, their first choice. Different couples, but all belong To a part of the same family tree-Some homes marked only by a lilac bush Some left partially standing Some re-modeled and still in use. The years of toil are evident In old established trees A well built house that stays cool The large garden spot- And many loving families who come. The years of absence are now evident A tree stands grey and dead The garden spot high with weeds A new view where the barn once was- The absence of an old dog hobbling about. Still, there is peace on this spot of earth A peace that can be felt One that strengthens and comforts And remains for all who come-To this Sanpete family farm where there is Peace on earth. 32
