This poetry post is submitted for Bill West's "Sixth Annual Great Genealogy Poetry Challenge"
You can read all about it at this link:
I've submitted a few poems by my grandmother to this challenge in previous years. Bertha Louise (Roberts) Wilkinson (1897 - 1990) was the poet in our family. Usually she wrote about nature, or New England (she was born in Yorkshire, England) or members of the family. In this poem she wrote about her first trip to Utah, and to Salt Lake City. I thought the LDS members of the genealogy community would enjoy this poem. My grandparents changed churches many times during their lives, and after retiring to California in the 1970s they joined the LDS church. The landscape in Utah must have been rather exciting to my grandmother, after living in Yorkshire and in Massachusetts for the previous part of her life.
