Vol.2..Norwegian Farmer’s Son..June 28th

June 28th……….“WHEN YOU WERE IN HIGH SCHOOL, DID YOU BUY A CLASS RING? WHAT WAS IT LIKE? DID YOU EVER GIVE IT TO YOUR GIRLFRIEND TO WEAR”???

POEM – “My High School Ring” created by N. Elliott Noorlun.

An “E” for Elliott can be seen on the side of his very worn 1972 class ring from Battle Ground High School in Battle Ground, Washington.

Today I found, My High School ring,

Among a box of treasure.

And memories, Came flooding back,

In abundance without measure.

Look closely at the bottom center of the ring’s stone and a faint rainbow effect can still be seen.

The Rainbow Stone would sparkle,

Especially ‘neath a spot light,

Spectrum colors would intensely dazzle,

Within my pleasured sight.

Elliott’s High School Girlfriend, Derra Abernathy, would wrap yellow yarn around the ring to make it to fit her smaller finger. “Dimples” was Derra’s nickname for Elliott in those days. 😉

My High School Sweetheart, Would wrap it round,

With yarn to fit her finger,

Then show, with pride, To her girls alongside,

Why by my side she’d linger.

This is the Battle Ground High School emblem that USED to be visible on the face of Elliott’s High School class ring.

I’d worn it for years, Till it was tired,

And faded from past glory.

But it still has power, To bring to flower,

The past and it’s sweet story!!! 😉
