THE PATTERN by Owen Sanders
- My father dug the ditches
- And tilled the stubborn soil;
- What have I, his son,to show
- For all his years of toil?
- My Mother gnarled her tender hands
- And suffered for my weal;
- What have I, her son, to show
- For all her faith and zeal?
- Their faith and love of God was strong
- their zest for life sincere
- What have I, their son, to show
- For what they held so dear?
- My folks have sketched a pattern
- And blazed a vivid trail;
- They have earned their Golden Goal
- Only, I, can fail!
