YUCCA PEACE
By
EDNA O'BRIEN
Ontario, CaliforniaThey
left
the small rooms.The narrow walls, the giddySpeed and loud distractions
Of a rushing city
And came as weary strangers
Into a larger space
Where nothing louder wasThan desert wind. A placeWhere traffic was untamedCoyote, lizard, hareAnd other small
earthlings
That quietly go unnamed.They came into a worldOf juniper-command.Of rock-serenity.Of yucca-peace and sand.They came into a placeWhere sounds were whisperingsAnd something in their eyesAwoke and spread bright wings.

Encino,
CaliforniaFinallyThe road escaped its mountain trapWith a writhing lurchThat hurled it out upon the desert floorFlattened, parched, despairing in its searchFor watered places.But there in front a rainbow archedAnd the grateful road.Uncaring for a pot of gold.Treasured the thought insteadFhLit where there is a rainbowThere is rain.And straight into the rainbowForged ahead.I do not doubt that Aaron's ro<With miracle of buds for I have

Heaven's for the takingHere and now.Life is for the making
If you allow
The little elements of HopeAnd Faith and Love to play their partIn every inch you upward grope.
And give you heart.All valiantly, up ever higher
To aspire.

Santa Barbara, CaliforniaLonely sentinel of arid, desert lands,Standing serene beneath the sun's fie
ce
rays,
Or calm and silent amid storm-sand
blast,
On watch through silver nights and goldendays.Yoti are a symbol of that patience, hopeand trustWhich bears with
fortitude
the cross youmust.Unmoved by buffelings of wind and cold.Your branches raised toward heaven's dome.Seem to say God's love will you enfolc As His creatures small find in you a home.Teach me the secret of your spell—That in His peace. I. loo may dwell.
ANGEL ON SAN JACINTO
By
PAUL WILHELM
Thousand Palms, California
Enduring
on the mountain sideIn touch with desert skyWhere silent years forever bideNor sunbeams ever die,Is an Angel carved in stoneIts wings of white unfurledWith granite beauty upward
blown
Above the desert world;An Angel in the peerless skiesBehold, this lovely thing!The unbelievers raise dull eyesAnd waking spirits sing;It watches through the doubtful niiihtStone Angel heart
ablaze,
Gleaming from San
Jacinto's
heightIt gladdens darkened days;For, lifting from the earth's gray mire.This Caller from HeavenAlights the torch of Angel fireA flame of hope to men.
SUNSET IN THE PASS
By CLARINDA K. MERSHON
Cathedral City. CaliforniaWhen evening magenta cloaks Mount San
Jacinto
And shadows leave canyons for desertbelow;When the sun's goodnight glow Hoods
Gor-
gonio's turretsAnd dry sands bid welcome to cleanmountain snow;The winds then grow wild, the skies [illwith blackAnd white sands pile high on the fool-hills' broad back.But the storm soon subsides and coral
tints
blessThe landscape with quiet and soft uenlle-ncss.When evening magenta creeps down SanJacinto,God's pure light caresses his childrenbelow.In Motmt San Gorgonio's sunlight amishadow.He breathes down from Heaven to sethearts aglow.
