Title Gold is Where You Find It
Description A miracle of grease and ashes boiled together became white soap for washings. Threshers boasted, "Wait 'till we get to Sister Steven's for chicken and squash pie," Yesterday I stood beside a grassy plot and counted the manifold blessings between those days and mine. Her years had stretched to nine decades when finally her hands were stilled,. A lilac-scented breeze bore this remembered bit of wisdom, , . ¦ : "A place for everything -• * -"" and everything in its place." I lovingly and humbly whispered ¦ ¦ , ¦• • "Is legacy or challenge mine today?" - ¦ i GOLD IS WHERE YOU FIND IT ¦ - ¦"' - ' ' Wilma Morley Despain . ' ¦- 683 North Main Street ' ¦' ''' ' Alpine, UT 8400 3 ¦ ¦ ¦ Honorable Mention Poetry ' >.'-'' - : I'm surprised I'd wax sentimental ' " ' About our old wooden butter churn. = ' ¦ - Why? Because it was my luck '¦¦ ¦>• " - ¦ To have to turn and turn. ¦ ¦¦¦ ¦ ¦ ¦ ' It was always waiting for me. . ' ' ¦ ". ¦ : *•¦' It made me often fume and burn. '- '' ;-*"' Still, I loved those gold kernels ¦ -; ¦ ¦ ¦ ¦ ' '" That came from that fat old churn. " ¦ ¦ ' ¦ ' '¦'¦ ; i From first splish splosh of golden Curds, much slower I would turn • V A few backward strokes to gather ¦ '¦ Soft gold from that plump churn.
