Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 10, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta POT-LUCK IhunJay, Dccombm 10, 1971) lilt ICIH8RIDCC IIKMD 3 TJOT-LUCK is in a poetic mood this week. So here goes nothing! Firsl, one from E. S'. P. Fox: Ode to a Parking Meter Gosh I was pretty all silver and yellow So proudly I stood, like a girl with a fella The Dial up to (jO; Uie slots one and five Just slip in a coin, then I would jive. The Merchants adored me, now it would show No one parked free, it cost everyone dough And people laughed low, and thoughl it a lark For the Dollar fine, when 1 went under the mark. The Seasons passed, I stood in tire snow Occasionally I'd freeze, then receive the odd blow I became sorta tarnished, then I'd hear curses From people digging for pen- nies, in their little purses. Now I'm getting the feeling that I'm not wanted For oft times my regulations, are severly flaunted I'd like to go away, and leave my spot bare To Mars perhaps, where some- one would care. -E. S. P. FOX A great little drinking song: The Beaver A Toast Song Far in the deepest Northern wild, Where pines trees tower on high And rocks by warring gods up- piled Rise shapeless to the sky, The Beaver builds his fortress home, Secure from every foe; His teeth are sharp, as those who come Against him soon shall know. CHORUS Then a health to the Beaver (fill your Then a health to Ihe Beaver (drink it We're sons of the North, and from sea to sea The health of the Beaver our toast shall be, We're sons of the North, and from sea to sea The foe of the Beaver our foe shall be. By D'ARCY RICKARD It leads to a land God only knows, To the land of eternal frozen snows, That trail unknown and olden. And they tell a tale thai is strange and wild Of a lovely and lonely moun- tain child That went up Ihe trail from Golden. A child in the sweet of her womanhood, Beautiful, tender, grave and good As the saints in lime long olden. And the days count not, nor the weeks avail, For the child that went up the mountain trail Came never again to Golden. And the watchers wept in the midnight gloom Where the canyons yawn and the Selkirks loom, For the love that they knew of olden. And April dawn, with its sun aflame, And the eagles wheeled and the vultures came And poised o'er the town of Golden. God of the white eteranl peaks, Guard the dead while the vul- ture seeks God of the days so olden. For only God in His greatness knows Where the mountain holly above her grows, On (lie trail that leads from Golden.
