Joseph Smith

Moroni appeared to Joseph
At the age of Fourteen years
Revealing to him the trials,
The tribulations; and possible tears
He warned Joseph
He must do the will of God
To protect these precious plates
To always cling to the Iron Rod
He said it would be some time
Before he could receive them
Each year he would give instruction
To guide and direct him
The time had finally arrived...
Joseph received the plates of gold
At that moment Satan started in
Then realizing the depth of what he was told
