DESERT WINDS
By CHARLES BURGER
Blythe, CaliforniaShy errant vagabond,Where is your home,What joyous spiritTaught you to roam, •Whence comes your footsteps,And whyThe fierce beat of yourWings in the sky,While breaking the willOf the strongest of strong.You sing with sheer raptureYour mad, happy song.Now lifting the sand dunesWith bold reckless hand.Driving it, flinging it.Far over the land.Fain would I share allYour frolic and rideFar from all worryClose by your side,And fain would 1 ride onYour chariot so lightKissing a sunset on a warm,Summer night.Or embracing a rainbowBrushing the dew,Then up through a cloud bankWith stars shining through.
Fashion Notes
By ANDNA MCCONAGHY
Bellflower, CaliforniaThe sand dune is wearing silk moireOf changeable weave of mauve and gray.Her billowy skirts, wind rippled, showWhite petticoats, scalloped row on row,Fluted and ribbed both front and backAnd feather stitched with a rabbit's track.Her
scarf,
off the shoulder, loosely knotsWith purple verbena polka dots.The sand dune is wearing silk moireOf changeable weave of mauve and gray.
CLOUD SHADOWS!
By GRACE PARSONS HARMON
Desert Hot Springs, CaliforniaCloud shadows roaming the desert,Do you bring promise of rain?Cloud shadows crossing the mountains,Heralding springtime, again?Does your still passing arouse them,Sleeping seeds dozing below?Are you reminding them gently.Soon they must quicken and grow?Or are you sweeping the ran gel and—Mo be ap of clouds blowing gay—Readying Earth for the Springtime—Spring, and its brilliant display?
DESERT MAGIC
By WILMA
Ross
WESTPHAL
Angwin, CaliforniaThe desert stretches out to endless spaceAnd blends with purple horizons beyond;Its cacti columns rise with thorny graceLike giant candlesticks with spiny frond;And clinging to the sandy ground beneathGleam golden blossoms of the prickly pear;The reds and pinks that deck the cactussheathAre jewels in the desert's tangled hair.Sand dunes and rocks; the canopy of blue;The canyon's rugged cliffs against the sky;The peace, the silence and the sun's rays too,Bring to weary hearts a prayer—a sigh.This space the Master Artist set apartTo bring a sense of worship to the heart!
By TANYA SOUTH
Then fill your days, your life entire,With work toward something you as-pire,Some noble goal. A fine idealTo make life earnest, deep and real,And endless, tireless of endeavor,Can all the lesser doldrums sever,And guide you steadily and farInto a sphere that none can mar.
