Walk Away Time

Forty Words:

A romance never happened

There was no azure moon.

He seemed to be dreaming

On that evening in June.

The prophets had told him

Church bells would not chime.

And tears filled his sad eyes

It was 'walk away' time.
Joyce Hemsley



Winston Churchill - The Poet

'We shall fight on the beaches
We shall fight on the landing grounds
We shall fight in the fields
And in the streets.
We shall fight in the hills
But we shall never surrender.'

Churchill's speeches were so well defined
Possessing a slight touch of rhythm and rhyme.
The most apt description clould be free verse,
A style of their own ~ iniquely diverse.
How could a wartime speech be poetical
When made up of words so widely political?
But Winston loved poetry, a great writer was he;
Nobel Prize for literature, nineteen fifty three.
At Harrow School, when only fifteen, he wrote
'The Influenza' ~ published and masterly.
And one day as his daughter's dog lay whining
He wrote a few lines, to stop her from crying...

'Poor Puggy Wug'
Oh what is the matter
with poor Puggy Wug?
Pet him and kiss him
and give him a hug;
run and fetch him a
suitable drug.
Wrap him up tenderly
all in a rug ~ that is the
way to cure Puggy Wug.

AH! But what a great Orator
And War Leader
Winston Churchill became.
Joyce Hemsley



Words are Everything


and Inspiration
words that go together
we use them in our poetry
romantic literature and parody
well-written compositions
in the cultured world of
Inspiration and

A Comforting Gift

Holy and meaningful hymns I hear
And gone has yesterday's fear.
The words of glory tell heaven's story
And all anxieties disappear.
Church music of such renown
Offers a reassuring sound...
Forever the notes will comfort me.
No other could mean as much to me
As this magical gift I have found.
Joyce Hemsley
