Title Hometown
Description HOMETOWN ELayne T. Anderson Salt Lake City, Utah Hon-Professional Division Second Place Poetry I'm proud when I think of my old hometown, Bat remembering brings tears. Beep in my heart I an a child again, Ee-living those wonderful years¦ I am back walking childhood's path again With friends now gone other ways. The echoes of war and worldly care Had no part in those golden days. I've walked tree-lined streets to the graveyard, Played ball on the old school lot, Waded along the creek by the cliffs When a >h v^ made us tired and hot. I've seen the glories of bluebell in blossom, Fished from Snow's Lake crystal clear. Skied vith the wind by Taylor's Flat, Heard the frightened hoofbeats of deer. I've sung hymns in the old Corner church In the cool of a summer eve, Mourned in the sweet-scented quiet When the loss of a loved one would grieve* I've seen moon-shadowed pines on Horseshoe* It was so special just being alive As I touched the very edges of heaven On breathtaking Skyline Drive. It seems childhood most last but a moment, And a memory is all we can hold. Yet in the eyes of each friend from the past There is joy aa each story's retold. There isn't a neighbor, a house or a street, Aa I have traveled the years around. Bat is there in thiB place dear to ay heart Back home in my old Home Town* -59-
