  1357.     

One Of Brooklyn's Best

Mai West said it all
through the annals of time.
We remember her still
'Queen of Vaudeville'
and so very much more!
Mai wrote, and acted
in 'Diamond Lil'...
but this Broadway lady
felt the chill of autumn gales
on a cold November morning.
We expressed deep
sorrow in mourning.

One of Brooklyn's best
Her name was Mai West
And here I make notes
of just three of her quotes
from a list, which is endless:

'So many men, so little time'
'To err is human but it feels divine'
'Why don't you come up and see
me sometime.'
 
Joyce Hemsley
   
 

   
   
 

  1358.     

One of the 'Greats'

We shall not forget,
we remember yet
the name of a very great man:
Sir Geoffrey de Havilland,
born eighteen eighty-two
died nineteen sixty-five.
As British Founder of the
De Havilland Aircraft Company,
he designed The Moth,
The Mosquito Fighter Bomber
and the Comet Jet Air Liner.
Fame in the Twentieth Century.
Knighted with the OM; we still
honour his name.
 
Joyce Hemsley
   
 

   
   
 

  1359.     

One Word...Brainpower

Forget the fighting and the feuding,
save battle as a last resort,
the time has come for urgent dialogue
using 'brainpower' as we ought.

Two thousand years have shown us how,
great years of history ~ read it now!
We are civilized...forget the gun
Use the brain and 'Thine will be Done'.

What is the problem all about?
Nuclear bombs and the like are out.
Forget the hate of yesterday.
Let 'brainpower' help us on our way.
 
Joyce Hemsley
   
 

   
   
 

  1360.     

Only A Dream

Jenny fell in love with Danny
He set her teenage heart aglow.
And Jenny's dream was heaven-sent
As Danny whispered soft and low:

'I love you Jenny
I hope and I pray
That in my arms
You will always stay'
 
Joyce Hemsley
