Gold In The Hills

Humour Intended:

At her stall she stands
Selling cut flowers
Roses and sweet daffodils.
Fifty pence per bloom
Or eighty pence per bunch
Cos there's gold in them there 'ills.

Knitting wool she sells
At sixty pence per ball
And pretty silk petticoats with frills
I'm making a fortune, she said yesterday.
Cos there's gold in them there 'ills.

Some people pass on
As she's selling her wares
But her goods are top of the range.
Though there are some kind folk
Who hand her a coin
And call out 'please keep the change'.

When blossoms start wilting
They're reduced in price...
Those roses and sweet daffodils!
Thirty pence per bloom
Or sixty pence per bunch.
Cos there's gold in them there 'ills.
Joyce Hemsley



Honeymoon Cottage

Double Rictameter:

Close to the sea
Such a friendly cottage
We will honeymoon endlessly
It's our little secret ~ don't repeat it
Or all lovers might wish to be
Kissing under the tree
At the friendship

So sweet to see
Dream days of ecstasy
On the horizon there will be
Sailing ships over the bountiful sea.
It is secret ~ don't repeat it
All lovers yearn to be
In the friendship
Joyce Hemsley



Kestrels and Petrels

Birdwatching's for the very few
Outdoor hobby for me and you
Out where the sky is ever blue.
Take your telescope and tent
Weather maybe 'heaven-sent'
Delightful for the children too.

young Catbird
our lonesome friend
whose distant note is heard
from the sunny shores of lands end
to where the Cornish hills and cliffs ascend
Many more rare birds fly in from across the sea
where smitten 'birdwatchers' silently spend
hours with a writing book and a pen
content - watching that bird
make swift descent
no sound heard
each bird
Joyce Hemsley



Love and Goodwill at Christmas

Beautiful Christmas, spread your wing
May your brightest glow excite us.
Night of nights, your carols bring
Presents, wine and everything!
Festivities to delight us.

Beautiful Christmas, joy bells ring
And light up the world to please us.
Tinsel of gold and silver bring
Holly, mistletoe, everything!
Love and goodwill at Christmas.
Joyce Hemsley
