Title Pioneer Grandparents
Description PIONEER GRANDPARENTS Lillian Hansen Fox 140 North 1st West Manti, UT, 84642 Senior Citizen Division First Place Poetry I never knew my grandparents, I never touched their hand, For their turn on earth had ended Before my turn was planned. Or did we meet someplace up there, Did they know I came, To this earthly home they helped prepare, To carry on their name? Did I spend some time with them, Did they point the way, And tell me of my parents here, And the yard where I would play? Did they tell me I would open doors, Where they had carved the knobs, That I would plant garden seed, Where they had broken sod? Did I know they met the Mormons, And joined the Zion band? And drove a team of oxen. Across an unknown land? I never saw their smiling face, They never dried my tears, But often in a quiet mood I feel their presence near. Sometimes when I doubt myself, And reach out for a hand, I wonder if they transfer thoughts That help me understand. I never knew my grandparents But I believe I'll see Them waiting by another bridge That they have built for me. -94-
