Title Sailor and Dan
Description SAILOR AND DAN Roger Leonard Burnside Nun-Professional Third Place Poetry The buds in the Birch and Cottonwood trees begin to come out along the creek, the snow melts, and the first grass appears, the Robins sing and maybe a Bluebird or two. As you can smell and hear Springtime, you can hear my Dad's ¦'gidup gidup" to Sailor and Dan as he plows the fields, at sun's first ray, in my Old Mountain Home far away. The Peonies bloom and the Sweet Peas down the lane, as the summer sun ripens the Blackberries along the fence and The Jonathans in the trees. My mind's eye sees Dad and Sailor and Dan cutting hay, in my Old Mountain Home far away. Fall time comes, the Jons turn to red, the Silver Poplars to gold, the Blue Plums are fat, black and juicy, and cooking apples are ready for mother's apple pie-Summer has slipped away. In the old barn, now fallen. I see Sailor and Dan eating hay. in my Old Mountain Home far away. Now it's winter, time to enjoy Christmas, time to keep warm milking the cows, time to get the chores done early, time to read a good book. Time to have Dad hook up Sailor and Dan so we can ride in the sleigh, in my Old Mountain Home far away. Now we look forward to another time, although the farm, trees and flowers are still there today, the caretaker and his mate have gone away. They are watching Dad's old team in green pastures. Oh,! miss them all! Just to hear my Dad say. "Gidup."or Sailor or Dan neigh in my Old Mountain Home far away. 57
