Title Dancing at Fiddlers' Green
Description echoed; even whispering resounded as we walked on through the arch.. It was another year before I was baptized in the font where the oxen I had helped polish surrounded the water. I climbed the steps to the kingly chair to be confirmed an official member of the CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST OF LATTER-DAY SAINTS. This was a very special day, my birthday, when I became eight years old. The holy hands upon my head, the reverent prayers echo in my mind. They have been a guiding light, a comfort and a blessing. Children today are not privileged to be baptized in the temples. When I remember what it meant to me, I feel sorry for children of today. * * * DANCING AT FIDDLERS' GREEN James L. Jacobs 1052 Darling Street Ogden, UT 84403 : First Place Poetry In our youth we rowed boats on Ras Anderson's pond, And the swimming there was supreme. But the thing we enjoyed more than anything else Was dancing at Fiddlers' Green. We braided the maypole and played fox and geese, Caught trout in the clear mountain streams, But nothing we did was half as much fun As dancing at Fiddlers' Green. In the hills we picked pine nuts and choke-cherries, too, In rodeos, rode bulls that were mean, But no other sport raised our spirits as high As dancing at Fiddlers' Green, We danced at the "gym" and the old Armory Hall, At Moon Winks the dancing was keen, But nowhere else did we get the same thrill As dancing at Fiddlers' Green. 35
