The Sego Lily Chapter

 

In 1976, the Sego Lily Chapter was established in order to create a chapter in Davis County.  It was named Sego Lily Chapter to pay honor to the State Flower of Utah.  The following poem demonstrates why we found this name choice so endearing. 

 

" Sweet native lily of the western plains, to us you are a sacred flower.
Your smile gave promise that the wastelands, afterwhile,
held harvest hope for earnest toil and pains
of Pioneers who trekked uncharted ways to find a home.

Your graceful flower cup of creamy petals, outward curved,
looks up to drink night's dews and warmth of shining days:

Your dainty markings, soft as velvet down,
blend into yellow gold from richest brown,
in depths of loveliness.

Your slender stem and modest leaves crown you a flower gem,
like you, our Utah gropes with eager hands -

 

For food and beauty in the desert lands. "
