Living Alone

What a wonderful day,
I am living alone.
Luck's smiled my way,
I've a house of my own.
Selfish maybe,
But hearken to me...
It's the life of the future
Peaceful and free!
Statistics now prove
It's an 'up-market' move.
Life can be a pleasure
Enjoying your leisure.
Joyce Hemsley



Poetry Sublime

After reading beautiful sonnets that rhyme
You will wish to read more
If you have the time.
Oh the rhythm is like a dream
Especially on a classical theme.
Non rhyming poems lack the splendour
Of those old-fashioned lyrics by
Wordsworth, Turner and Spender.
Joyce Hemsley



Queen Elizabeth II

Forty word version:

The Union flag is flying
billowing on the breeze
above the beautiful roses
and England's old oak trees.

The reign of a royal lifetime
Elizabeth has seen it through.
Our Queen stands in glory
beneath the Red White and Blue.
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.
