Title Take Heed, Oh, Wind
Description TAKE HEED, OH, WIND Jenny Lind M. Brown Salt Lake City, Utah Professional Division First Place Poetry When last I saw my old ancestral home, Its windows,--burnished bright with sunset's ore, Its sunken path and purple-laden tree, All beckoned me to open wide its door. Though 'dobe walls are crumbling now and scarred By countless days of wind..and sun..and snow, In the shadowed hush of yesterday's rooms, Soft voices breathed welcome from long ago. The iridescent bowl with fluted rim Is missing, and the apple-blossom plate, But dusty books in measured rows stand firm, Their penciled lines in faded script still wait... With care I touched the muted, yellow keys, Lest I should fault a simple melody, But heard instead the sudden burst of quick, Ascending notes within a rhapsody! Oh, waiting wind, oh, burning sun, take heed! Do not surmise that you can ever raze The proud old home! When I, alone, can build With tears a memory to take its place! -87-
