Education, Education.

How very well I remember
The Second World War
And Winston Churchill's Coalition.
Parents of grammar school children
Seeked assistance with their mission.
Education was the Act of the day...
School fees were no more,
Great news for the poor.
The school leaving age was increased,
Slightly higher than before.
Yes, an important Act calmed all fears
During those memorable wartime years.

Spanish Holiday

It's a holiday in Barcelona
in the warmth of the Spanish air,
along the Mediterranean coast
just 'taking life easy' there.
Dreaming of a Love I lost
many years ago..
and how I yearn for his return
to Spain, when lights are low.

Oh just to be in Barcelona
admiring the Central Square,
and the Plaza de la Catalunya
memories linger there.
To visit the Rambla Promenades
and Cathedral...I won't delay,
for the summer sun is waning
and winter is on its way.
Joyce Hemsley



Sonnet - Fourteen Lines

Walking through the country
My best friend at my side
We met a group of students
Their faces shining with pride.

They were off to gather blackberries
Vegetables and strawberries,
To take to the nearby retail store
Down by the sandy shore.

This was their summer employment
And picking fruit was sheer enjoyment
My friend and I were overcome...
The job paid well, a tidy sum.

A pleasant way to earn their pay
And oh my, what a beautiful day.
Joyce Hemsley



A Flood of Memories

Romantic nights of song and dance
Still live within my heart
And when I recall our ecstasy
Beautiful memories start.

In love, we waltzed beneath the moon
How foolish! I cannot deny...
Hand in hand and cheek to cheek
We left the world behind.

Such joy will never come again
For we are young no more.
And in golden dreams I clearly see
The way we were before.

The places where we used to go
Have crumbled now with time,
Gone has the old seat by the mill
And church bells never chime.

But love goes back a long long way
Maturing with the years like wine
And hand in hand and side by side
We still leave the world behind.
Joyce Hemsley
