Appointed Day 1948

Britain will always remember
the fifth of July, forty-eight...
the day the Health Service
came into being; how could
we forget such a date?
Everyone thrilled at the
gift to the State ~ a scheme
fair and equal to all.
Prime Minister Attlee with
Bevan beside him,
helped post-war Britons
as never before.

Sixty years have now come
and gone, with the Health
Service surviving the storm,
its candle still burning brightly
but may be in need of a little
reform. A Service Britons
are proud of; a lifeline for me
and for you, giving freedom
of choice to every citizen...
without it, what on earth
would we do?
Joyce Hemsley.

April Tears Were Falling

On a late April evening
In two thousand and two,
The breezes blew southerly
Beneath sky of pale blue...
Our Queen Mother's funeral was over
England's fair Lady we shall ever adore;
Her fine regal spirit ascended on high
To heaven's sweet golden shore,
Where reigned her dear Love, the King
Who died many years before.
May God in His unfailing kindess
Take care of them both evermore.
Joyce Hemsley



Cherish The Moment

We are here on this earth for only a moment
Our lives are but clouds that quickly drift by
True love is all along life's fateful highway
As like leaves on the tree we wither and die.

So cherish the dream; it is our gift to savour
And he will sing you a love song divine
Walk with him now through a garden of eden
Taste of the fruit and drink of the wine.

Embrace his soul ~ NOW AND FOREVER
Let romance cling like the grape on the vine
You are his springtime, summer and autumn
A soft-glowing light that will constantly shine.

So when you're together with starlight above
Moonbeams enhancing those beautiful eyes
The angels will know how he loves you so
As concertos ascend to a luminous sky.

~~Cherish the moment~~

August 2008

Deep Deep River

Rictameter - first and last word
must match ~ syllable count and reverse...

So deep and wide
Flow gently, for awhile
Take advice from the constant Nile
Where the Aswan Dam has magical style
You bring floods, the Nile never does
Seems a Dam is a must
Take a hint deep
Joyce Hemsley
