Title My Boyhood in Sanpete
Description Yes, the Twenty-Fourth of July was a special day in the early history of Mt. Pleasant. Much time and effort were put into making it a day fit to honor the pioneers, who made this land choice above all others. MY BOYHOOD IN SANPETE Vic Frandsen Springville, Utah Senior Division First Place Poetry Oh, where are the pals with whom I played When I was four or five? Sad to relate, I greatly fear That few are yet alive. Dread diphtheria stalked the youth, Shutting off their breath; Smallpox and scarlet fever Thinned our ranks by death. But I recall the merry days And years that slipped between, While I grew up from four or five 'Til I was seventeen. With neighbor boys, and sometimes girls, We played by San Pitch Creek, Out among the tangled brush In games of hide and seek. Building dens and digging caves Along the sandy shore, "Bug houses" in the driftwood With hiding sites galore. Our finest boyhood treasures Were buried in a box; Fishing things, a frying pan; Knives and fancy rocks. -77-
