Title Song of a Century 1849-1949
Description SONG OF A CENTURY 1849-1949 Lillian Fox Senior Division Third Place Poem A tribute to Manti's Centennial History Book Sing to us, book of by-gone days: Open wide your pages and let us see, The miracle of Manti and Sanpete, And how they came to be. Sing of this land called "The Sanpitch," Tucked away in Utah's breast, Of rattlesnakes and wick-i-ups And painted Indian breasts. Sing of the dauntless Walker, And all his fearless braves, Whose conquered hearts turned to stone. We tread now on their graves. Sing of adventurous pioneers. Leaving homes beside a salty lake, Digging roadways into this wilderness, Replacing poverty with faith. Sing of slabs of oolite stone. Buried in a pre-blessed hill. Creating a temple in the dust, With naked hands and human skill. Sing of roadways spreading out From Manti, the mother town. Into the rugged Sanpitch vales Where a network of cities now abound. Sing out! O Song of a Century: Sing into our hearts and souls. That we may raise our standards high. To match their lofty goals. 5
