  69.     

Have you seen? Have you heard?

Have you seen the mockingbird
in the tree abiding
resting in a homely place
where humans are residing?

Glorify the birds
albatross and eagle
fabulously regal.

Have you heard the hummingbird
coloured wings a-quivering
flying hither, flying dither
around the flowers twittering?

Sanctify the birds
turtle dove and herring gull
beautifully regal.

Have you seen the lyre bird
resting on the ground
always bright, sweet delight
devouring insects from the mound?

Venerate the birds
gentle swan and seabird
elegant and gently regal.
 
Joyce Hemsley

He Never Strays Far

London to Paris
Paris to Rome:
He never strays
far from his dear
country home,
where a kind
soul is waiting;
truth shines in
her eye, and the
green dales are
calling 'neath a
pink evening sky.
He never strays
far if springtime
is nigh ~ and
early tomorrow
back home he
must fly, to a
happier life in the
sweet by-and-by.
 
Joyce Hemsley

Heavenly Delight

Never had magic filled the sky until
Beethoven's Sonata echoed on high.
In love was he with a maiden fair
Countess Guicciardi took him there
And her magnetism was no lie...
The Moonlight Sonata tells us why.
Classical music ~ in three parts
Guitars, so gently, touching all hearts
Number fourteen of Beethoven Sonatas
Was heard beyond hills
And over green pastures
In wonderful moonlight upon the lake
Music resounded for love's own sake.
 
Joyce Hemsley

Humble Thanks

For
the stillness of the morn
our joy when tiny lambs are born
gardens full of glorious fowers
I humbly thank the heavenly powers.

For
thoughts of golden days gone by
the lark ascending in the sky
babbling brooks and gentle streams
I humbly thank this land of dreams.

For
the magic hour you said 'I do'
glamorous nights all spent with you
the echo of our baby's cry
I humbly thank The Lord on High.
 
Joyce Hemsley
