Title A Token of Affection
Description A TOKEN OF AFFECTION Lucy C. Nielson Castle Dale, Utah First Place Poem Senior Division In the cold month of November The year was eighteen forty nine When those we now remember Were led by Faith Divine To the Sanpitch River Valley With majestic mountains high They would build a little city Beneath this western sky. With a helping hand from Heaven Isaac Morley led this band. Fertile soil, and wood, and water, Granite ledges, willing hands Fashioned homes and farms and gardens And a Temple, stately, Grand Emblem of their faith and courage To grace this lovely land Here a choir of Heavenly voices Sang Hosannas pure and clear To the throng of humble mortals As they sat in rapture here. When Indians raised objections And made their murderous raids Killing people, stealing livestock Manti was so far from aid. Then came hordes of grasshoppers Such a plague they proved to be Leaving in their wake starvation Adding to the misery, Now it's nineteen hundred forty nine A century as time flows And we see this desert blossom With the beauty of the rose. - 24 -
