Title Pioneer Grandfather
Description PIONEER GRANDFATHER Jewel King Larsen 455 South 100 East St. George, UT 84770 Professional Division Third Place Poetry I see that old, hand-made table with the four, tiny hard-wood chairs; Then I think of the one who made them, shaping each with such loving care. In my mind's eye, I see him toiling in his faded home-spun shirt, Smoothing the wood with gentle touch, softly humming a tune as he worked. How I long to discern his feelings As he crossed the great divide; Know how he coped with the sorrow and grief When cherished loved ones died. I yearn to take his hand in mine and tell him how deeply I care; How much I esteem and revere him and those other brave souls who dared. I know I shall see him someday; Talk with him face to face. I hope I can tell him I carried the torch, With honor in the race. Source: The table and chairs referred to in the poem are still in use at the home of a member of the family. -69-
