The World of Grandpa Don

My Father Wrote ...

This poem follows a now familiar pattern. My father much preferred the wide open spaces to the hustle and bustle of the city. He was also obviously impressed with the unique culture of the Zuni, a tribe with which he must have had some contact in Arizona in 1918. You may say that the Zuni were the Swiss of the American West. Of course you never heard of them. They were peaceful, never engaging in any of the disputes of the American migration west or for that matter with other Indians. Their cultural differences were as unique as their language. Read Zuni.

Thanks again to my sister Marilyn Copeland for applying the graphics and preparing this page.

My Father Wrote ...

by Alden J. Copeland

Shortly after my introduction to my younger brother and sisters, the Copeland family, in the fall of 2006, my sister Marilyn Copeland sent a copy of "The Return". It was a poem written by our Father. At Christmas of 2007 Marylyn assembled a book of his compositions adding graphics as shown here. .

They have given me an insight into the father I never knew and I share some of them on these pages.
