Title Home on the Sea
Description HOME ON THE SEA Louise B Johansen Senior Second Place Poetry The ship Horizon became our home for six long weeks or more And no hearts could be more thankful When we reached the promised shore. Our daily tasks were much the same as while living on the land-Caring for our children with this faithful, cheerful band For we were sailing forth to worship as we pleased Our children did not understand as they played and laughed and teased. Sometimes we got so seasick on the deck we had to lay We moaned and groaned and heaved 'most of the night and day. When sickness overcame our loved ones and they were laid to rest in graves of the mighty ocean, our faith was put to the test Our prayers often calmed the troubled sea and we knew we were doing what was right. We loved the gospel our missionaries taught us, so we strove with all our might. 1
