Title The Tale of Jimmy Riddle
Description It has always been a haven To come to from the cold, With hot, homemade bread and butter, And much, much love to hold, We kids have grown and gone now, But always in our hearts. We know we can return there, With grand- and great-grandchildren, And old and new sweethearts. To feel the love and laughter, And happiness it imparts. * * * THE TALE OF JIMMY RIDDLE Sherrie Ahlstrom Hundley Uh3 North 750 East Orem, UT 8405 7 Second Place Poetry There once was a man and they called him Jimmy Riddle, And he made fine music when he played upon his fiddle. Yes, he played for the dances in the Spring City Hall, When the people came to hear him they surely had a ball. He'd take up his fiddle and he'd lay it 'cross his knee And the music that he played was as sweet as it could be Everybody started tappin1 and a-movin' just so. While Jimmy kept 'era happy with his fiddle and his bow. "Let's go, Jimmy Riddle!" they would holler out loud, And he'd play all the louder just to pacify the crowd, The fellers and the gals were a-swingin' and a-swayin' While Jimmy and his band kept a-pickin1 an' a-playin' He could play all the tunes that they wanted him to play. And he'd play on for hours 'til the early light of day. From a waltz to a two-step, a polka or quadrille, Everybody kept a-dancin' until they got their fill. "Hurray, Jimmy Riddle!" you could hear the people shout, There were all a-havin' fun and there wasn't any doubt That Jimmy and his band had the whole place a-jumpin' For the feet were a-flyin' and the blood was a-pumpin'! 95
