3 Memories, Stories & Photos about Maude

A Grandson Grows in My Garden
He listens to water playing its song
As he fills a bath for the sparrows;
Then he catches tadpoles till shadows grow long,
Marking the ground with slim black arrows.

Like quicksilver is five-years-old,
But still as blue-eyed grass,
He watches a butterfly's wings unfold,
Gold velvet and jewel-topaz.

He drinks lemonade with mint and ice;
Picks purple grapes for his mother;
Then curled in my arms he sings "Three Blind Mice"
Till the gate latch lifts . . . Another

Long garden day has left its trail
On the mind of a five-year-old;
As silver-gleaming as dew of snail
Are the treasures his dreams will hold.

- by Maude Rubin, published in the Relief Society magazine. organ of the Relief Society of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, 1963.

How Great the Vision
Here on the granite spine of earth
The abandoned trestle straddles the gulch,
High sierra silhouette
Against sunset,
Symbol of man's age-old romance
With chance.
How great the vision,
Wider than miles that separated seas,
Taller than these giant trees.

"Steel rails shall span the continent!"
Their voices roared in 1861.
Through dust of doubt the project was begun,
Timbers were lifted, squared by hand;
This rearing skeleton was manned.
By hope, each gorge a winter challenge,
Each peak a summer goal.

At last gray plume of smoke, white flower of steam,
Thin shrill of whistled triumph.

Now mossed with time, these aging timbers still reach high
To touch the sky.
And arrowing silver, higher yet,
With only a narrow moon to whet
In appetite for light.
This space-bound jet.

- A poem from "Leaves of Laurel" by Maude Rubin
