Love In December

One magic night, my heart took flight, over to you.
Snow was pure white, beautiful sight, silvery hue
Moon at its height, songs of delight, nightingales too
Holding on tight, love felt so right, 'heaven for two'.

A silvery moon shone o'er the Danube
Evening stars glowed from afar
Conveying the wonder of classics by Elgar
Distant violins and moonlight sonatas
A dream of true love in December...
We will always remember the pleasure.
Joyce Hemsley



Second World War

Memory Lane forever leads back to those
Desperate years, when days were so black.
Sirens were sounding and people were scared.
To their shelters they fled when war was declared.

British Cities were bombed ~ buildings fell to the ground.
Destruction was rife, stones and bricks all around.
Theatres and churches, little was spared
In those terrible raids after war was declared.

Brave men on the home front gave of their all
To bring food drink and shelter, and answer each call.
Families made homeless with dearest ones dead
Was a pitiful sight; with streams of tears shed.

There seemed no ending, the war just raged free
Killings at home, ships lost at sea.
Women and children lost their lives in the fight.
Oh never again must we face such a plight.

But after five years in battle, Victory came fast.
The scourge of hostility ended at last.
Britons and G.I's were Victory Day mad
Revelling and dancing, the scene was quite sad..

As Victory Night passed and daylight broke through
A new life began... peace dawned anew.
We must never forget the multitude who died
The fought for their country and so turned the tide.

From armed conflict to peace. That is how it must stay
Thank Heaven for the glory of that eighth day in May.

The Galaxy

Poetic Style: Acrostic

Did he study for his Doctorate
Or was the degree honorary?
College boy he could have been
The star of all philosophy...
Outstanding and superior
Riding high in the field of knowledge.
Antecedent to a Nobel Prize.
Tomorrow he may very well be
Entering into the galaxy.
Joyce Hemsley



A Bird's Life

Sweet birds
the favoured ones
flying close to our God
high up to the heavens of blue
over the sandy beach out of our reach
and we stay on earthly terrain
coping with human pain
but love you bring
Sweet birds
Joyce Hemsley
