Sterling W Sill / Family Poetry 1965
Title: Family Poetry Publication: [Salt Lake City]: c. Quarto [28.5 cm] Green buckram with the title gilt on the front board and backstrip. Privately printed and distributed collection of poetry by Sill and others, that also offers some commentary and thoughts. In the following pages are found some poems that relate to the heartbeat and highest thought that family members might think in their various relationships of parents and children, husbands and wives, brothers and sisters, sisters and sisters, and brothers and brothers. A very wise man once said that the poets stand next to the prophets in their ability to lift us up and exalt our lives. No one can pursue for very long a study of the great poems without being impressed with the close affinity existing between poetry and religion. As George Santayana, the American poet and philosopher born in Spain, has pointed out, poetry and religion both spring from the same source. Indeed, poetry seems to have had its beginning as the handmaiden of religion.
Sill was named an emeritus General Authority of the L. During his service, he was the speaker over KSL Radio's Sunday Evening on Temple Square for 17 years, and addressed many Church and civic gatherings. He authored 47 books on religious and social themes, including a popular series on leadership.
He served for 11 years as a member of the Board of Regents of the University of Utah, four as chairman of the board. We locate one institutional copy (LDS CHL) of this work.
