Title The Dobe Maker
Description And killed, and were killed, and many buried here Remain. And tho' we hold the land that once was yours, We homage pay. And with true mystery You bind our thoughts.) You cannot tell us now. You, too, are gone. A hole atop this mound of earth was once your room. Here chips of flint and broken pottery-- Historians of your past, as mute they lie Upon the ground. THE " 'DOBE MAKER" Marzetta Willardsen Ephraim, Utah Non-Professional Division Second Place Poetry With you, besides large families, each man had brought his trade. Your furniture and dug-outs you had crudely made. You'd left choice homes of hand-made brick, their clay of grey and blue. There was no kiln, but with this soil, you'd make adobes do. The land must, too, be wrested from its state of puberty And made to bear some fruit and grain to fight your poverty. But you must start new homes, your time was stretched so thin. With aching muscles, you would think, "Just where should we begin?" Your families sheltered still in the darkest, caveman way Often it was hard to keep a smile throughout the day. -32-
