Durham City

Come all ye jolly wayfarers
and visit Old Durham Town,
a place with long years of history
a British place of renown.

A Norman Cathedral and Castle
bridges an old-fashioned mill...
could fill your day-out with wonder,
Come and climb up Old Elvet Hill.

Explore the City of Princes
and take a trip on the river Wear
see trees so green, a University
Minster bells you surely will hear.

The famed Durham Miners' Gala
is held every year in July,
brass bands play thro' narrow streets
and banners are held way up high.

Durham is worth a visit, believe me
if only to admire the encompassing view
and enjoy some time in a market town
where St. Cuthbert would call to you.
Joyce Hemsley



Exciting Upholstery


Unbelievable talent shown by an amateur
Padding the sofa and two small armchairs
Handwork so neat on the old-fashioned suite.
Objective accomplished beyond all our cares
Leisurely work, and flaws there are none.
Selecting the colours was so very much fun.
This talent maybe used in days of recession
Economy's the word, 'upholstery' the obsession.
Regular orders, and a business could thrive...
Yes! the chosen material is about to arrive.
Joyce Hemsley



Foot And Mouth

Looking back to the month of May
In the year of our dear Lord 2001
Handel's Chorus drifted away
Silently echoing across the bay
An animal disease had begun
So highly contagious
And completely outrageous.

Prayers were sung to the heavens
Country folk fought back the tears
But success came our way
And we honour the day
Handel's music came back to stay.
Virus contained ~ happiness regained.
God answered our prayer of despair.
Joyce Hemsley



He Was My Star

Kisses on my left cheek,
and kisses on my right...
his eager arms caressing me
in darkness of the night.

He was my star from heaven
my hope and guiding light,
the kindest soul I so adored
to whom my heart took flight.

If I awoke tomorrow
and found him smiling there,
gone would be my sorrow
no more pain to bear.

Love would bring sweet kisses
two hearts would be so light,
his eager arms caressing me
in the stillness of each night.
Joyce Hemsley
