My Birthday

Children's Poetry.

Sweet Jasmine called
'knock-knock' on my door,
gave me some earrings
and chocolates galore.
A pretty card she wrote
with writing so clear...
I was 'over the moon'
to have Jasmine here.

She brought her new toy
really meant for a boy!
two elderly dwarfs on a swing.
She played for a time
then said 'please say a rhyme
about two men on swing'.
I started to sing like
a bird on the wing.

Here is the rhyme,
fresh in its prime:

'Ding a ling, ding a ling
two old men on a swing
one man is green
a total 'has-been'
and one man is red
he's ready for bed...
so ding a ling ling
two men on a swing.
Now, let us sing.'

And oh the rapture
the joy and the laughter
on my birthday.
 
Joyce Hemsley

My Bonny Boy

The bounteous sea sings a merry song
With lyrics that tell me he's coming home.
I have been waiting so very long
And now my heart holds joys unknown.

Behold! I see a ship a-passing
Across the horizon, sirens blasting.
Oh tell me, tell me I'm not dreaming
And soon I'll see his smile a-gleaming.

Ship ahoy ~ come sailing my way
Please bring my 'bonny boy' back to me.
I will count the minutes of each day
Until from longing my heart is free.

The swirling sea is never wrong
When she sings her Autumn song.
 
Joyce Hemsley

My China Replica

When out and about in the City
Oft' I repeat a secret prayer...
Where is the old-fashioned Cross?
I can't see its attraction anywhere.

Oh, if only I could see the Cross
My obsession would be set free.
All my troubles would be lost
With my inner thought on Calvary.

But alas, I find no Cross of Jesus
No symbol divine do I see...
I rush to my home 'where the heart is'
and my china replica waiteth for me.
 
Joyce Hemsley

My Delight

One little chocolate was left on the platter,
The one which was covered in a shiny green wrapper.
I heard my lonely chocolate sing this refrain:
He sang it so softly, then he sang it again...

'Oh ~ don't leave me unwanted
to melt in the night, just take me
unwrap me, and taste my delight.'
 
Joyce Hemsley
