The Mountain Trail
December 2, 1938
I think my home is pleasant
And very full of glee,
For vrhen I start to enter
It seems to ‘welcome me.
I love it through the night time
I love it through the day.
I never want to ramble
Nor ever move away,
Cakes, apples, and pumpkin pics.
All on the table nice and hot.
HyJ just watch with eager eyes.
That turkey lifted from the pot.
L'lyJ oh my I how nice they look«
Better than a picture book.
The big turkey will steam v/hen it
Just like a baby crying when it is
OhJ but tho table looks so neat,
''.'J'ith all the mixed up meat.
But the big turkey looks sc fine
T/hen all the children come to dine,
Miss '"'hiteside; June, this mrikes
five times this v;eek that I have,
scolded you, V.Tiat have you to say
June: I am glad it is Friday,
miAH I m THANKFUL FOR
I am thankful for my family
For vrater good to drink.
For all the beauties 'round I see,
And going to school to learn to
Thank you God for teaching me
And having something for oach to be.
Dear Father, thank you for the clothes
And thank you for your loving care. \

'rinding round and round
Goes the Mountain trail.
Guiding man and horse
Over Hill and dale.
By brush and tree.
By rock and stream.
It goes its v;eary way
Till the stars begin to glenin.
Through the darkness
It travels on.
Always faithful on
Thj:ough the morning dawn,
