  1585.     

Thanksgiving Day

On the fourth Thursday in
November each year,
Americans are of good cheer,
enjoying fine food and wine,
and thinking of a long-ago time,
when the Pilgrim Fathers sailed
in the Mayflower from Plymouth
to America's Massachusetts.
Britain's Captain, 'John Smith',
gave the region its name
~~~New England~~~ and on
every Thanksgiving Day,
Americans enjoy the harvest
both the scene and cuisine.
Our place names are linked
from way back in history...
the seventeenth century being
quite an eventful mystery.
 
Joyce Hemsley
   
 

   
   
 

  1586.     

That Great Galaxy Of Fame

Poetic Style: Acrostic.

Did he study for his Doctorate
Or was the degree honrary?
College boy he could have been
The star of all philosophy...
Outstanding and superior
Riding high in the field of knowledge.
Antecedent to a Nobel Prize.
Tomorrow, he may very well be
Entering into the galaxy.
 
Joyce Hemsley
   
 

   
   
 

  1587.     

That Lonesome Word

'Poverty'

As far as the eye can see
no other word in our vocabulary
begins with letters p-o-v.
The word stands all alone
calling for our sympathy,
humanity, love and charity.
Let us hope this lonely word
will soon be swept into history.
 
Joyce Hemsley
   
 

   
   
 

  1588.     

'That Old Devil Moon'

Words spoken by a
sweet young maiden:

As soon as I hear him speak his name
I will surely be falling in love again.
So very immature am I...
Can't trust myself, and that is why
I need a friendly shoulder
Someone who's a little older
To tell me what to do.
Because I must stay happy and single
Where life is a sweet merry jingle.
And I hope the dust of my cocoon
Will protect me from 'that old devil moon'.
For if ever I hear him speak his name
I could be falling in love again.
 
Joyce Hemsley
