Title Pioneer Father - Green Manna
Description PIONEER FATHER Edith Allred Price, Utah Non-Professional Division Third Honorable Mention Poetry When life seemed wanting in his quest for truth He heard God's word revealed in foreign land. He felt a burning as had William Blake Before. He sought a home in God's choice land. Should he become another Jefferson, Or common laborer to till the soil, He learned he was an equal in God's sight And each was needed in His sacred work. God led the way, the barren road was long. The Man was filled with fears for life and kin, But faith impelled him to endure in spite Of tragedy, hardship, illness, and pain. He braved the siege of snakes and Walker's Wars, The warning of the drums and Indian spears, In darkest hours God sent kind Sowiette. But for this loyal friend, The Man had died Unmourned on Manti's rocky countryside. This rugged soul assigned to Sanpete home Now sleeps beneath the grass, but still lives on. We are the offspring of his destiny. To us he left God's word--his guiding light. The truth for which he fought lives in our hearts! GREED MANNA Non-Professional Division Fourth Honorable Mention Poetry It was growing there green and verdant in a desert waste. Unsown by human hand, Unwatered save by rain or morning dew. -37-
