Title Shockman
Description THE OLD PIONEER WAGON Archibald J. Anderson Fairview, UT 84629 Non-Professional Division Honorable Mention Poetry The old pioneer wagon stood in the yard; Its life had been long and hard, A reminder of the past Unlocked thoughts in memory cast. A story never completely told Of many experienced raw and bold. In silence it now rested, Never again to be severely tested. Wheels now brittle and dry with age Had rolled through stream and endless sage; The tongue had held a steady course, Never deviating from a dedicated source. Through weather good and bad It ever pressed onward, for it had Ajs important journey to make--Home, destination, success at stake, Rugged mountains to cross Behind sturdy oxen and horse, Violent rivers to ford and reach The other side without a breach. Rolling down Emigration Canyon full Of expectation of an end to push and pull, A thousand miles traversed, still A sturdy frame moved with grace and will. Yet another mission to perform, An ancient valley to reform. This time the tongue turned south; Again it was loaded to feed the mouth. The trip was short over uncharted trail That only Indian knew, yet, hail- Sanpete, a beautiful valley, lay ahead With all promise a glorious future said. -29-
