Title Memories of the Stories I've Heard My Mother Tell
Description MEMORIES OF THE STORIES I'VE HEARD MY MOTHER TELL Colleen McCormick Non-Professional Second Place Poetry The love being together, in work as well as play. Not to have a constant reminder as it is in our day. All it took was a tap on the window with a thimble to get our attention, not some great new invention. The long skirts that flipped the wood shavings in all directions as she, my grandmother, passed by. Beautiful styled hair and beads that were adorned and easy on the eye. Snow, a horse, and carriage is a scene close to my heart. Everyone tried to have the best town. From well-groomed horses to decorated carriages shown with pride, what fun all those inside. What wonderful place to rest in a cemetery across from the Temple, that one's Grandfather helped to build. God's house where generations of children can come to kneel. So many emotions we all feel. My Grandpa Taylor ran the Movies House, first as a janitor, then as a manager passes on to his son, William McFarlane. Also the skating rink at Palisade Park. A child's dream fulfilled, especially with an uncle owning the Ice Cream Store. Who could ask for more? The train that came into town. A whistle blew for a special signal that all was well. Be home soon anxious awaiting loved ones to fill the parlor room. My mother played trumpet in the women's band. She must have been a beautiful sight and made a few hearts of the opposite sex delight. Oh yes, it's plain to see the effects of Manti pass on me. Not quite the same as before, but too many to ignore. Mother-Eva Taylor Nielson 56
