  1197.     

Nineteen Thirties Depression

Forty Words:

Men laboured the martyr way
in meadows of hay,
oblivious of the inclement weather!
To give little children
food and warmth
and moccasins of leather,
'survival' ~ their sole endeavour.
The Wall Street blue...
they saw it through,
forever we'll remember.
 
Joyce Hemsley
   
 

   
   
 

  1198.     

Nineteenth Century Poet Laureate

Alfred Lord Tennyson
Composed many masterpieces.
His popular 'Lady Of shalott'
And 'The Charge of The Light Brigade'
Are poems which will never ever fade.
Alfred had brilliance and ingenuity,
Much understanding of humanity.
Talent magnified him and
There are few beside him.
The world now treasures
An inspiring legacy.
 
Joyce Hemsley
   
 

   
   
 

  1199.     

Nineteenth Century Reform

The Empire Slave Trade
we shall never forget,
recalling William Wilberforce
abolition was his quest.
Christian and Social Reform
he studied with zest... and
witnessed the Slave Trade
diminishing at his twenty-year
behest; the Bill was accepted
when put to the test.

William went to his final
resting place ~ satisfied that
his Slavery Abolition Act
would meet with much praise.
And we shall always
remember a man such as he.
William Wilberforce
seventeen fifty-nine
to eighteen thirty-three.
One of Britain's Best.
 
Joyce Hemsley
   
 

   
   
 

  1200.     

No Cares or Woes

How very nice to be Mr. Average
Not too low, and not too high.
Never brimming over with intellect
Just a normal kind of guy with
knowledge enough to 'see him by',
Bothering not about his 'IQ'
Intelligence quotient was Binet's problem.
Binet was one of the brilliant few
A man with an inquisitive eye
Who devised a test for children and adults
And our Mr. Average still wonders why.
 
Joyce Hemsley
