We Learn From Our Mistakes

The only way to be happy in life
is to sort out problems with care,
erasing all worries from the mind
and avoiding a dismal nightmare.

If similar problems occur in life
the answers will be there - no despair!
and if an error or two we happen to make
We will learn from each little mistake.
Joyce Hemsley



Wonderful - Wonderful

Sixteenth August nineteen seventy-seven,
we could never-ever forget this date...
the sad day when Elvis sang no more.
He left his Memphis Mansion at
Forty-two years of age, and how the rain
poured down on Britain's shore.
Now in two thousand and ten we turn
another page, as in our thoughts
his name belongs.

In memory of Elvis Presley.
The great and wonderful singer of
Great and wonderful songs.
Joyce Hemsley



A Bitter Pill

Terrorism can be so frightening
A Black September of our times
And 'Bali' was one of the names
added to the list of crimes.

Terrorism is often so 'sudden'
No warning sirens are heard.
1939 had sirens and shelters
But terrorism is shockingly absurd.

This bombing outrage has a history
Of factions who kidnap and kill
And raids easily gain momentum
And the resulting horror is a Bitter Pill.
Joyce Hemsley



A Clever Endeavour

There's a beautiful nest liken to heaven
In the town of Exmouth in Devon...
Its name is The A La Ronde
Shining each morning at birdsong,
Nostalgic, historic, whatever the weather.
Two eighteenth century cousins ~
Mary and Jane ~ cast their spells and
designed this house of feather and shell.
It's no Linden Lea, but visitors agree
In sunshine or rain, it's a fantasy.

The A La Ronde, Summer Lane,
Covered in layers of feather
Was the clever endeavour of cousins,
Mary and Jane working together.
Joyce Hemsley
