The Harp of Gold by Carol Eliassen



Back in elementary school probably around 5th or 6th grade I wrote about Vietnam.  I remember the substance of the story/poem but can only remember these specific words.  It was about the true love of a girl whose boyfriend or husband was killed in Vietnam.  I think from what I remember it had something to do with a girl running up a hill and opening a gate and then falling down and seeing the harp with the inscription.  I had a wild imagination then and still do.  I just need to write it all down.  

A friend or one I thought was a friend back in elementary school asked if she could borrow my stories/poems ( I had many) so she could copy them and would give them back.  Unfortunately, they are lost forever because she refused to give them back to me.  Maybe that is why I like to publish things online now because they will hopefully always be there!  Hope you enjoy reading.  I'm thinking about using this part I remember and writing an online story.  Check back for more.   

There was a harp pure of gold
A foreign made kind
It said Vietnam
