Title The Family Album
Description THE FAMILY ALBUM Eleanor P. Madsen 295 East 1st North Ephraim, UT 84627 Professional Division Second Place Poetry On a day when I was home from school, or a silent, Sunday afternoon, long years ago, I was allowed to look at the red, plush-covered family portrait book. Inside was a quaint music box and tiny key to unlock the sweet, old fashioned melody that played the tune over and over again as the worn pages turned in my eager hand, searching the inages of an enchanted past for roots to dream upon. A lady in a blue, smocked dress, ruffled lace, her auburn hair like mine. A dark, whiskered man ... It was not so long ago he put sugar lumps in my stocking toe. A dear grandmother, small, slight, her thin, grey hair pulled back tight. Two little girls in pink and white pinafore, sisters, in starched petticoats they wore. A dark-haired baby, his long, white dress Kept through the years . . . for naming, ... to bless. I learned each name-Tanta Hannah to Uncle Chris, imagined ancestral voices on days like this, re-enacting all their parts and plays With this old album of yesterdays.
