A New Term Begins

Forty Word Poem:

When summer turns to autumn
There's no contentment to compare
Coolwaves replace heatwaves
New friendships linger there.
Children with leather satchels
Wander in groups to school...
For 'boy meets girl' in autumn
And a midsummer dream
Becomes an autumn jewel.
Joyce Hemsley



Doubting Love

Whenever he speaks
You hope for a mention
Of the way that he feels
You watch his expression.
A caress on the cheek
Is not worth a mention
Will his lips kiss your lips?
There lies the question.

Will he... or won't he
Come around in the end
With two dozen red roses,
Are you more than a friend?
A reply to the question:
'Forget him my sweet'
Because a kiss on the breeze
rarely falls on your cheek.

August 2008.
Joyce Hemsley



His Poem For Helena

When I dream of Helena
How I dare to love her
For Helena's my lady
And all her grace is mine.

My heart she fills with longing
And wild anticipation...
I kiss her lips so tenderly
Oh, Helena divine.

I pray I'll never lose her.
My world would end without her,
Sipping wine, I ponder
on retiring to cloud 'nine'.

Attracted to her loveliness
I hold her hand in faithfulness,
And thank The One in heaven
For this young love sublime.
Joyce Hemsley



'John Denver'

Many years ago in mid-October
Nineteen ninety seven,
A faulty aircraft fell to earth
Descending down from heaven.
The inexperienced pilot's life
Was taken at the scene...
His name, it was John Denver,
A music man supreme.
The world was overcome with shock
And filled with much despair,
John Denver's revered name will
always stay in mid-October air.
As a poet and great songster
With tenor voice like wine,
He made music for the millions
To last through endless time.
A Friend of Earth - Oh hunger not!
Just 'follow me where I go',
His lyrics were so beautiful
With Rocky-mountain flow.
He left us on a jet plane
'Take Me Home Country Roads'
But at Monterey Bay he ended
his day, our legend to behold.
Joyce Hemsley
