Clear As A Crystal

As clear as a shining crystal
In the rays of the noonday sun
The view is a scene of beauty
Across the sparkling horizon.

Goodbye to mundane happenings
Farewell to the England I know.
I am staying for awhile in Ireland
Where the three-leaf clovers grow.

But to dearest Britain I shall return
Long before winter is here...
To visit the Royal Pavilion
And wander along Brighton Pier.

As clear as a lustrous crystal
Ships will sail by one by one,
As I gaze o'er the sea at noonday
From Palace Pier in the Autumn sun.
 
Joyce Hemsley

Death And Destruction

To live in the south of England
in nineteen forty-one
was terrifying and horrifying
the bombing left one numb.
I stood on the hill and saw it -
the aftermath of it all,
buildings flattened, fires raging
debris from wall to wall.
Thousands of civilians killed.
I think that says it all.
The days were dark and gloomy
the nights were long and cold;
death and destruction lingered
and the story must be told.
I was one of the lucky people
I survived those years you see
yet in my heart I've a longing
to see once again my family.
However bad life seems today
it could never ever compare
to the suffering on the homefront
in the Battle fought from the air.

Enjoying Life

Poetic Style 'The Diamond'

Mobile
is our dear Lady
Full of life and energy
A freak of nature in a way
She appears to be younger everyday
Oh she'll live for a century
Because of her smile
She's happy and
Mobile

Exaggeration On A Theme

Elisia and Sylvia
Julia and Lydia
sang the great Fantasia
the all-American Dream...
Alabama, Arizona,
Florida, Louisiana
Nevada, Nabraska
Place names evergreen.
Carolina, Oklahoma,
Pennsylvania, Dakota...
Sopranos sang in harmony.
Exaggeration on a theme.
 
Joyce Hemsley
