Accidents Happen

Forty Word Poem:

Harassed in heat of the day,
the driver searched for
an access way to the
urban medical practice
skidding at a sharp bend...
missing the clutch - amen!
All was hush,
he was only eighteen,
and sadly died at the scene.
 
Joyce Hemsley

Beautiful Summer

A warm breeze is blowing

God's roses are growing

And winter and springtime are gone

Sunshine is glowing

All nature is showing

That summer is here with her song

Dear sheep are bleating

And lovers are meeting

Drinking a cup of good cheer

But summer is fleeting

So hold me my sweeting

Whilst the glory of first love is here.
 
Joyce Hemsley

Bullets and Poppies

Bullets were flying
and soldiers were dying
as crimson poppies
swayed in the breeze,
beyond the trenches
beyond the green leas
in the fourteen-eighteen war
'the war to end all wars'
but these words sadly
failed to please.

The poppy's the emblem
and sorrowful hearts in sympathy
wander back to Flanders Fields
where thousands of comrades
were shamefully killed.
Golden the archives,
with names of the heroes...
and the poppy still sways
in the breeze, because
wars will never cease.
 
Joyce Hemsley
   
 

   
   
 

  48.     

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
