Treasure Island

Loyd C. Taylor


Accomplishment!


First a baby… a beautiful little girl,
A special gift of God sent into this world.
Her parents were blessed as they gazed into her face,
She was named Hannah, meaning “favored grace”.

Then a child… a delightful student in her school,
She also loved church and lived the Golden Rule.
Studying hard, hitting the books both day and night,
The choices made shaped her character for life.

Now a lady… a hopeful adult she’s become,
For twelve long years now this honor she has won.
Graduating today turns life’s page once more,
Stepping from this stage into other open doors.

Congratulations Hanna!

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
