Title A Gunnison Valley Poet
Description schooling made her talent more remarkable. Evelyn was a true poet* In 1974» a short biography of Svelyn and two of her poems, one written for an older sister and titled, "Her Letter," and another, "Swifter than the Y/eaver's Shuttle," appeared in an anthology of verse printed by the Utah State Poetry Society-its Golden Ajiniversary of Utah Sings. Another honor was given her in 1975 "by the Brigham Young "University, when a poem by Evelyn Fjeldsted was read at its graduation exercises. Letters written to her by President Heber J. Grant and Apostle Mark E. Peterson, in appreciation of her beautiful poetry, were cherished by i^velyn and kept always among her choicest keepsakes. In 1965 a small volume of her poetry titled, "Valley Sketches," was published, and before her death another, which she called "Later." These little books are precious mementos for those who admired her poetry and the valley she loved so fondly throughout her life* Evelyn passed away on the 1st of March, 197^, when in her ninetieth year. Selections of her poetry were read at her funeral services, a last fitting tribute for the Gunnison Valley Poet. Fallowing are a few of her poems which express her thoughts about the beautiful world we live in: THE HOMHIHG BUffl Srom heights of a leaf in the wind, The humming bird swings through the air And, sighting a twig once again, A little bronze statue is there. Speeding with summer, he brings A kiss for a flower at dawn; Then, with a swift wheeling curve. Like a bobbin with wings, he is gone. 90
