DESERT SUNSET
By GEORGE I. LACEY
Kingfisher, OklahomaI often linger along the trail,As the setting sun drops low.To watch the gleaming, golden raysTurn the mesa rim to a golden glow.Now the changing lights on the distant peaksThat were copper and red and gold-—Hade to violet and mauves, before my eyesAs the shadows of night unfold.Then the shimmering lights on cliffs andbluffsGleam with a thousand tints and hues,Now change to more somber grays andbuffs[n the fading light, their colors difuse.Could an artist paint—or a poet write?Coutd either ever completely cope?As the desert changes from day to night;With this beautiful, natural kaleidoscope?The light fades fast—the sun has set.And all is well, and we understand:That the Great Creator did not forgetThis wonderful, desolate desert land.Now the day is done and the night is nearAnd out of a wash comes a coyote's wail;And out of the heavens the stars appear;And we hurry home—o'er the desert trail.
Zion Canyon
By MILDRED BREEDLOVE
Las Vegas, Nevada.1 came unto a place where scarlet peaks,Like hewn cathedrals, rise a thousand feet—A solemn place where silent grandeurspeaks.Where God and man, and earth and heavenmeet.The Great White Tower might have beendesignedAs mute petitioner throughout the years—•For those who come, who see, and yet areblind,The Weeping Rock sheds constant streamsof tears.The Great White Throne, a tree for everygemAtop a thousand-foot vermilion base,Remains a matchless royal diademWhose patterns only wind and rain cantrace.And it was there I came to understandMy kinship with the lowly grain of sand.
DESERT WIND ANTICS
By LAURA W. DUNLAP
Santa Ana, CaliforniaThe wind god sweeps the desert floorUntil he feels the task well done.And then from chore to play, he combsThe sides of sand dunes just for fun.
OLD INDIAN POTTERY
By JEAN HOGAN DUDLEY
Inglewood, CaliforniaThis piece of pottery has tales to tell:Here mountain goats were hunted, here aboyBrought sheep to drink at his small desertwell.And here a father fashioned a rude toyFor his dart-eyed and laughing little child.Here mother's hands ground corn with pa-tient care.And here a family has lived, and smiledAt the warm, everyday love they couldshare.
Path
of
Wisdom
By TANYA SOUTH
Let us not judge another, then.Ourselves, too, may be judged.For common mortal is our grain,And all of us have trudgedAlong the weary path of sin,With desolation marked.Till we have caught the light within,And to the Small Voice harked.The plight in which I see anotherWas once my own. And were 1
wise.
Each man would be my long-lovedbrother.Thus should 1 rise.
